After completing a UK headline tour which included a triumphant four-night run at London’s Olympia in front of a combined audience of 40,000 people, Foals are set to take the sun-kissed sounds of their ‘Life Is Yours’ album to an array of major festivals this summer. As the June 17th release of ‘Life Is Yours’ approaches, Foals unveil their new single ‘2001’.
Their infectious personalities glow just as much as their sun-drenched calypso sound. Cassia combine the positive indie pop of bands like Foals and Vampire Weekend with the jazz-tinged afrobeats of Fela Kuti and Ebo Taylor and American folk influences like Paul Simon to create an individual sound that uplifts.
Cassia have announced the release of their new album Why You Lacking Energy?, and shared ‘Motions’, a brand new single from the forthcoming record.
After revealing the song last week Foals have shared a video for latest track ‘2AM’. The song is taken from the now-trio’s forthcoming album, ‘Life Is Yours’, scheduled for the summer. The video comes via director Tanu Muiño, and was filmed in Kiev.
Brooklyn band Geese formed when the five members were in high school, practicing, writing and recording in their basement home studio that they dubbed “The Nest.” The band blend a variety of indie rock and post punk influences for a danceable sound that has room for mathy precision and pop hooks. They made their debut, Projector, between their Junior and Senior year, working on it after school and weekends, all before a 10 PM curfew to avoid noise complaints from neighbors. The band are signed to Partisan / Play it Again Sam, the album was mixed by Dan Carey (Squid, black midi, Fontaines D.C.).
Projector includes recent single “Disco” and the new single is “Low Era” which gives off strong, funky Foals vibes.
Foals have shared a video for their new single “Wake Me Up.” It is the first release from their forthcoming studio album, which is set to be released in 2022. Watch the Dave East-directed video below.
Described by frontman Yannis Philippakis as “our version of a dance or disco record” with lyrics which “transport oneself out of the oppression of lockdown and the bleakness of last year,
Coming from the paradisiac island of Mallorca, come the alternative sounds of The Prussians. Coincidence of origins and influences of artists such as Glass Animals, The XX or Alt J, which results in a sound comparable to that of Half Moon Run, Foals or Balthazar. Bases with “Flow” mixed with an evocative voice, combining rhythms at the service of dance. Atmospheres pierced by rhythmic machinery accompanied by electronic touches that stimulate and evoke the intensity that characterizes this band.
