Let It Go For Tonight | Foxes

Rating: ★★★★☆

The moment I have been waiting for is finally here: we have some new music from Foxes. Here in the United States, we fell in love with her voice in Zedd's "Clarity," and although not much else has been released and promoted from her solo career in the United States, the Internet has let me follow her from across the pond. When it was released on Sunday, I quickly picked up on "Let Go for Tonight" and I'm not letting it go for a while. (Sorry for the pun.)

With "Let Go for Tonight," Foxes targets contemporary pop audiences with a strong power-ballad style. The lyrics are really uplifting and center around letting go of worries and living for the moment. Foxes requests her listeners to "Turn off the lights" and "Let go for tonight baby / Let love in your life and be shown" during the chorus, which has to be my favorite part of the song. It's so explosive and crescendos the drums, strings, guitars, and piano to create a really amazing tune.

The music video fits the song perfectly, as the scene changes from a dull white room to an explosion of color and happiness. Hopefully listeners will get this same happy feeling while listening to the song and manage to throw it onto the charts, because I would love to hear Foxes' voice broadcast on radio stations again. With Ellie Goulding's "Goodness Gracious" and now Foxes' "Let Go for Tonight," the British are already off to a great start to the year musically; hopefully we Americans can catch up soon enough.
