BOTW #35 – Foals

foals1
In honor of the only band I didn’t know that is playing at Deck the Hall Ball 2013, this week’s BOTW feature is Foals and they should totes be added to your upbeat/indie-rock playlist. Upon my initial Wiki-search of Foals, I learned that they were from the UK. I have this theory that all bands from the UK are good, and Foals proved this theory with ease.

With decaying and sparkling guitar effects, live-sounding drums, unique instruments (pretty sure I heard some marimbas), and 80s-inspired keys, Foals brings a fresh, yet retro sound for listeners to digest. I am stoked to experience their tune live, it should be a blast! Follow these guys at @Foals, and if you’re in the PNW, check here for tix to DTHB2013.

Peace, Love, & Rock n’ Roll,
A-Tran.
