I can finally blog about music again! And this time, I want to introduce you to another one of my favourites. Foals. They’re an English indie rock band who published their first album back in 2008, and it was a great success. They started gaining popularity mid-2008 because of this, and they have spiralled their way across the indie-rock genre. I think one of the reasons behind their success is the change of style in some of their songs. They change in their 2010 album ‘Total Life Forever’, to a more acoustic and slow style, mainly through the song ‘Spanish Sahara’, which personally is one of my favourite songs. check it out below.
They got really popular in 2013 in Australia particularly, getting the spot of 29th on the widely popular Triple J Hottest 100. They won ‘Best Track’ at the NME awards in 2010 and 2013, and ‘Best Live Act’ at the Q Awards in 2013. If you havn’t heard of these guys already, I would suggest joining the bandwagon now, because these guys are going places. I had the opportunity to see these guys live back in September 2013, but none of my lame friends wanted to come. C’est la vie.
For those that are interested, i’m doing a 2hr mix at my friends party on the weekend, and I’m going to record it and publish the live mix album next week sometime. So for those that are after some great party music, keep tuned!
