What We're Listening To...

Following their storming Reading set over the bank holiday weekend, Foals proved they’ve got what it takes to tackle festivals bigger than Latitude. Although, they were contained to an evening slot on the main stage festival, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if they were to be announced as one of next year’s headliners.

The Oxford quintet released their third studio album ‘Holy Fire’ in February; their stand-out performance made us revisit the album.

With talk of being 'An animal just like you', ‘Providence’ is by the far the best track to grace their latest record. They’re looking to go stadium and its tracks like these, with drummer Jack Bevan’s unrelenting assault on the ears that has us believing it won’t be long before they achieve stadium-filling success. 

Frontman Yannis Phillipakis sets Foals’ musical bar high with blunt edged and frenzied riffs, which sounded even better live at Reading when Yannis delivered a masterclass in glitzy showmanship and how to wow crowds even when they’re dragging you into their mosh pits. Praise the Lord, Foals have rocketed themselves into another stratosphere and we’re enjoying the fruits of their labour.
