Barely a cloud in the sky as the crowd descend on the BBC Radio 1 stage to see Louisa Rose Allen – or to the world at large Foxes – whose poster for her new album Glorious is plastered almost on every wall. The music starts and Foxes saunters on stage and opens with Talking to Ghosts and Night Owls Early Birds which has the audience clapping their hands and generally going quite bonkers.
She stops briefly after the latter to address her fans, “Scotland! T in the Park lets see some hands in the air!”. Next up is the single from Glorious which she introduces as the synths begin “I wrote this song on a train to London, its a song about doing what you love its called Youth”, hands are raised as Foxes bounces around the stage the audience singing and jumping to every note. Half way through her set and so far all new and her own material that is up until now when she drops a hint to the crowd about her next song, “I love you lot! Any of you guys heard of a band called Rudimental? If any of you have drinks I need you to down half your drink during this next song” the crowd erupting as Right Here begins.
Foxes clearly knows how to entertain a large audience as well as set the pace as the next song Glorious as a more mellowing affect on her fans before launching into her own version of Pharrell Williams hit Happy followed by Holding onto Heaven. Clearly fitting in as much as she can with the 40 minute slot provided she breaks again to introduce the next song of the set Clarity, “O.K. guys the next song I’m gonna do I did with a guy called Zedd. Sing along if you know it”, her fans whoop and applaud throughout the song and finishes her set with Let Go for Tonight.
As a T in the Park act goes it was definitely on the pop side but you cannot argue with the results, the stage was pact with an audience and there was no sign of boredom. Amazing live act and a fun high energy way to start of the Friday.
