Riff: Foxes – “Youth”

Oct 23, 2013

Now I’m just chasing time/With a thousand dreams I’m holding heavy/And as we cross the line these fading beats have all been severed

from Youth lyrics by Foxes

Now at the grand old age of 24, a panicky Foxes desperately tries to convince herself that her best days are still to come on a dramatic blend of galloping beats and ghostly synths which deserves to repeat the surprise success of her US Top 20 collaboration with Zedd; [LISTEN].
