Single Review – Foxxglove – High On Hope

Foxxglove returns with her triumphant third single, ‘High on Hope’ which is out 10th of December 2021 and available on all major digital streaming and download platforms. ‘High on Hope’ sees the Ferndale songstress return with a more positive and upbeat alt-pop/rock track to close the year out. Allowing her pitch-perfect vocals to soar, the optimistic track is about life after a turbulent time in someone’s life, stepping to the edge of despair & pulling yourself back. It’s the antidote to her second single ‘Bad Timing’ and continues the journey of the previous two singles. The single aims to unite outcasts, misfits and those who never feel like they fit the status quo as she roars “We are the lost kids, wanna feel fearless.” 

Foxxglove talks about the track saying, “High on Hope is born out of desperately trying to find like minded people and to be accepted and live fearlessly. I first thought of the lyrics whilst in alternative night clubs in Cardiff such as ‘Metros’ and ‘Team Up’ with my friends. I remember feeling happy and free and that I could be completely and utterly myself, something that I haven’t always felt throughout my life. It’s kind of an anthem for ‘outcasts and oddballs’. I was bullied throughout my time at school and always made to feel like a ‘weirdo’ or a ‘freak’. But I found people who were just as unique as I was and we all come together at these alternative night clubs and it just feels amazing like ‘getting high on hope’. That’s what the song encapsulates.” 

Dreamy and hopeful, ‘High On Hope’ is another in a triumphant release for Foxxglove which encapsulates the emotions she is known for and takes it to new heights in a more psychedelic way as if we’re in a trance of her design. The pop melodies might not be for everyone but the lyrics and voice will make everyone warm to her in a way in a way which doesn’t work with most artists.

Rating:4/5.
