an electrifying 3rd album from the oxford 5-piece which steps up their sound even further, skillfully merging the stadium sized sounds of 'wish'-era the cure, friendly fires' energetic indie-dance & a the rockier end of their angular guitar work.
Heavier than anything Foals have written before it nevertheless shines with their inimitable groove & funk & proves once again why they are pretty much untouchable amongst their contemporaries. recorded by prestigious production duo Flood & Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey, Nine Inch Nails & The Killers), it's a huge statement of their musical mastery. ‘Inhaler’ - an exhilarating, shamanistic tune set to purge the soul & raise the dead, which builds from a tropical bounce into a thunderous, heavy chorus - typifies the experimental nature of the record.
