Yannis Philippakis tells us that their Citadel show this weekend is one to watch…
Pitched somewhere between math rock and Talking Heads, Foals emerged in 2007 with a handful of intelligent, scratchy indie tunes that would go on to fill sweaty rock clubs all over the country.
Debut album Antidotes was a success in the UK reaching Number 3 in the charts. It wasn’t until the release of their second record Total Life Forever that Foals’ songwriting skills became apparent.
With the wraithlike Spanish Sahara leading the album, tracks like Blue Blood, This Orient & Miami demonstrated the maturity that lead singer Yanis Philippakis could bring to the already complex melodies.
When the band released Holy Fire in 2013 they managed to crash the mainstream with the mosh-pit inducing Inhaler and funk feast My Number. Foals prove that integrity and intellect can be matched with both accessible yet challenging tunes.
The What Went Down outfit will make their UK festival exclusive at the Victoria Park event.
