Foals are back

Here it is. Their new song, 'Spanish Sahara'. I was shocked when I first heard this. Compared to their hectic  minimalist, bouncy pop from the debut album Antidotes, this new sound seems like a totally different band. The new sound reveals quite the voice in frontman Yannis Philippakis; a voice that must have been laying dormant beneath his yelps heard in the first album.
So without further ado, I present to you, Spanish Sierra by Foals; taken from their upcoming album Total Life Forever, set to be released on the 10th of May.

    Very different, but very good. Still has the Foals character to it that the first album has but is chilling and kindof elegant. Am liking it! Yannis is brilliant! x

  2. Agreed. His voice is kind of hoarse, like the Band of Horses singer's, at the start of the track.
    I like the whole smouldering look Yannis has going on.
    I love the black stuff in the sea too.

    Yeah agreed, there video are always visually gorgeous and earthy though. Look forward to hearing the rest of the album!
