Reckon with Foals

This week Foals, out of Oxford (UK), released their third album Holy Fire. The band released their debut album Antidotes back in 2008, and followed up that UK Top 3 by Total Life Forever, two years later. Their second album was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize.
The guys told BBC Radio 1 they want to deliver original material each time. And that they have. Finally their music seems to grab the attention of a much wider audience, and radio stations alike. The new album’s guitar-driven lead single Inhaler made it Top 30 on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart. The current single My Number prompted this post. The funky rhythm and catchy chorus will have you hooked in not time. A real crowd pleaser. Foals are definitely a band to be reckoned with. Watch their latest video and a live performance of My Number here to get convinced.
