An excellent release from Foals, ahead of Holy Fire which is due for a February release.
From the perky guitar riff to the flowing percussion work, this track’s got a lot of instrumentation to love. The two combine for a bright, upbeat soundscape that will surely infect indie dancefloors all over, and certainly makes for an uplifting change of pace during this dismally dark winter. It’s one that’ll sound fantastic in the summer, and the vocal work is a big factor behind that, with the easygoing, mainstream-friendly lyricism and vocals anchored around an infectious hook, and supported well by sharp backing vocals.
Very enjoyable all-round indie jam, and this could very well be a decent hit for Foals. Looking forward to that album release.
