VIDEO: Foals “This Orient”

Posted March 26th, 2010 by eric

Now with two new songs exposed, Foals’ follow-up to the masterful Antidotes may very well be a completely different animal. The hyper-kinetic tension that made songs like “Balloons” and “Red Sox Pugie” such infectious anthems is nowhere to be found. This is not necessarily a bad thing. The band is experimenting with mood, sound, and texture in subtler ways. The new songs aren’t as immediate but they definitely grow on you. I’m cautiously intrigued.
