FOALS

Foals, WHAT WENT DOWN: ★★★★

And they’re back! Foals doing what they do best by dropping some toe-tapping alternative rock tunes for the worlds enjoyment. Album 4 from the British boys has seen the band embrace the darker elements of rock, introducing more big guitar heavy synth to their typically poppy beats. Lead singer Yannis adds wider range to his infectious voice, building from melodic ballads to hard hitting crescendos which though perhaps more slow burning than previous indie anthems are undoubtedly more hard hitting. What went down explores the maturing of an alternative rock band moving away from high-energy indie ballads and into the darker and more aggressive world of rock and roll.
