What Went Down by Foals



As the release of Foals‘ eagerly anticipated forth album What Went Down approaches this Friday, the band can now present the latest taste of what to expect with the new track “London Thunder“: a mystic, intimate song that represents the vision of changing, when living and having some experiences change you and this influences the way you see at things, differently, because you are different.
The band, after writing What Went Down in Oxford, in early 2015 moved to the south of France to record at La Fabrique in Saint-Rémy-de Provence, the studio where Morrissey finalized his return on the scene LP “World Peace Is None Of Your Business” and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds recorded “Push The Sky Away”.
Working alonside James Ford – the indie producer of the moment – the band released the follow-up to 2013’s ‘Holy Fire’ putting all members together the best on it.
The result, scheduled to be released on August 28 via Transgressive Records and Warner Bros Records, is an album most punk rock than before with infectious beats as in Mountain At My Gates, that embraces intimate tones which higlight intensive frontman’ vocals as in London Thunder and in A Knife In The Ocean, but at the same time turns to noise rock sound to put in evidence the strong basics by Foals as in What Went Down (the song that gives the name to the album).
