Foals are back and sounding pretty funky. ‘Inhaler’ is the first track to taken from the band’s impending 2013 album release Holy Fire. With their last album, 2010’s Total Life Forever, being pretty damn good, the anticipation dial has been cranked all the way to 11.9 for this one. With funky phased guitars and Yannis singing with his bollocks clutched a little tighter than usual, ‘Inhaler’ looks sure to be a crowd splitter, especially concerning that XL sized chorus (empassioned cathartic hollering, or the work of Bono’s bastardised sons?). The video has been directed by regular collaborator Dave Ma. ‘Inhaler’ can be downloaded now via iTunes.
Foals also announce their first solo London show since Brixton Academy in 2010. They will play the prestigious Royal Albert Hall on Thursday March 28th as part of the Albert Sessions. Tickets go onsale Friday 9th November at 9.30am.
