Foals – Balloons

10 11 2007

So it seems moustaches are very popular these days. Although, I feel like I should be wary of Foals and their Shoreditch/Hoxton style, I can’t help but find myself really liking some of their stuff. Hummer was a great single and the b-side, Astronaughts and All was even better. Wasn’t too sure about the last single, Mathlethics but the new one, ‘Balloons’ is rather dandy too.

I saw them at SXSW earlier this year and went away slightly underwhelmed, so I’ll hold final judgement until I hear their album. When I saw them in Texas, they struck me as a cross between Redneck Manifesto and Bloc Party (As it happens, Kele from Bloc Party was there watching them). Although, while listening to Marvin’s Revolt earlier, the similarities between the sound of the two bands crossed my thoughts.

Here’s the new single with lots of girls from the twenties pretending to be butterflies or something…

Jury is still out for sure on both Foals and Moustaches I reckon. You should check out their interview in Stool Pigeon this month, they pull out some fairly wanky chat.
