Lucky Listens: Louisa Rose Allen of Foxes

To say it’s been an exciting year for Louisa Rose Allen of the British electro-pop band Foxes would be an understatement in the truest sense. After releasing her debut EP, Youth, in January, Allen's " “anthemic and honest" sound amassed a seriously enthusiastic fan base (including Dianna Agron of Glee). In April, tracks “Youth” and “Home” were featured on Gossip Girl. Now, she's about to release her full-length EP, Warrior (out July 10), and embark on a US tour.

“I haven’t ever been to America but I’ve always wanted to go, and just the fact that music is taking me there is crazy,” says Allen.

While new-found celebrity has transformed certain aspects of Allen's life, one thing hasn't changed: her sense of style.

“I shop at a lot of charity shops and vintage shops, because in the past I’ve kind of been broke," says the singer, whose daily uniform consists of sundresses and beat-up Converse. “It was sort of a blessing."

On Accessorizing

"I love rings. I’m obsessed with having loads of them at the moment so I literally just pile on rings. Rings are funny, aren’t they, because they’re not really for anything. It’s like a hat. Sometimes I think they don’t have a use but they look good so I guess that’s what they’re for. Lots of chunky jewelry and rings, I love that sort of thing."
