Love Not Loving You

by Andrew MacGregor


Foxes: “Love Not Loving You” - 3 mins 34s

One wouldn’t normally associate bouncy electro-pop with art history, but Foxes thinks there’s crossover appeal. The singer, also known as Louisa Rose Allen, and director Rauri Cantelo present a moving collage to promote ‘Love Not Loving You’. Like a pair of cultural magpies, Foxes and Cantelo cut and paste pieces of classical art to their own beat.

It’s a canny use of limited resources, with due care shown to both curation and composition. Witty costume design bridges the gap between modern and classical (tracksuit ruffles anyone?), while locked-down Allen’s lyrics about self-identity leap out in tandem. Should keep art gallery patrons happy until reopening.
