Through brassy spikes of a horn section and the detailed twists of pseudo Afro-pop guitar, it's almost easy to forget that Britain's Foals are, at heart, a dance-rock band. Guitarist Yannis Philippakis and drummer Jack Bevan were childhood pals in Oxford who played together in a math rock outfit called the Edmund Fitzgerald. They evolved into Foals in 2006 when they were joined by guitarist Jimmy Smith, bassist Walter Gervers and, briefly, vocalist Andrew Mears. When Mears left the group to concentrate on his own project, Youthmovies, Philippakis grabbed the mic, and the band developed the sharp-edged, broad-minded dance rock that dominates their 2008 long-playing debut, Antidotes.

  • A Session With Foals


    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 12 min

    Being from the rain-ridden lands of England, Foals are used to a different kind of festival environment: generally speaking, frontman Yannis Philippakis described them as "mud and wellies" ordeals. So we're sure they were quite pleased to travel halfway around the world to the California desert to perform for Coachella's music-hungry crowds. Prior to taking to the stage in Indio, however, Foals made a pit stop at our little poolside bungalow to perform a Festival Fever Session featuring songs off their highly-acclaimed, recent full-length Holy Fire. While you might have already seen the band's in-the-flesh transformation of "My Number" into a slow-burning beaut, we've expanded the session to include the subtle closer "Moon".
