Foxes Throws a Retro-Style Party in ‘Holding Onto Heaven’ Video
Foxes just debuted the music video for ‘Holding Onto Heaven,’ the third single from her upcoming album ‘Glorious,’ and it’s clear that she knows how to throw a party. The British singer, who looks stunning in heavy winged eyeliner, loose waves and a pink pleasant blouse, has all the trimmings for an upscale, high-class party: gorgeous outfits, grinning guests and a live band — yet, there is still a twinge of sadness in the intriguing video.
As Foxes (born Louisa Rose Allen) dances around in the video, the lyrics are notably poignant and heartfelt (“I can’t take it/ ’cause you think nobody sees what you’re doing to me/ I’m telling you guilt is in your eyes,” she sings. “I hate what you’ve done, what you’ve made me become/ No sleep, face the night,”) reminding us all that there is more beneath the happy facade — a concept that is visualized when the scene is split upside-down. As scene shifts from upside-down to right side-up, so does Foxes’ mood, becoming cheerful, then sullen, and back again.
