foxgluvv hails from London via Birmingham, and debut release “Crush” sees her turning a hazy focus on late-night lust.
Co-written with producer Scott Colcombe, foxgluvv’s first single is a three-minute exercise in the subtleties of pop music - or as she herself describes it, “hungover pop”. Dreamy and weightless, it’s a track that slips down as easily as your sixth vodka-and-whatever, and leaves your vision similarly rose-tinted.
Musically, “Crush” somehow managed to perfectly crystallise the heady concoction that is alcohol-fuelled lust. Foxgluvv’s velvety vocal is draped effortlessly over glittering synths, whilst barely-there percussion breathes life into the whole affair.
Whilst Foxgluvv cites to-the-minute popstars Troye Sivan and Hayley Kiyoko amongst her influences, the feelings “Crush” invokes are perhaps a little less PG. This is a pop track, yes, but it’s one to whack on at the end of the evening when you’re done making eyes across the room and ready for something more.
