FOALS DEBUT NEW VIDEO FOR “CAFE D’ATHENS”

Today, Foals debut their new music video for Cafe D’Athens via Noisey, whom call it a “rollicking journey through several mind states; full of dreamy vocals but pinned down with strong percussion … the video also features lots of radiant flowers blooming, trippy visuals, shapes, flashes of light – all that good stuff.” Watch it here.

Frontman Yannis Phillipakis revealed of the song:

“‘D’Athens‘ was the outcome of me trying to teach myself how to use Logic properly. I wanted to break away from loop pedals and cassettes, which was how I was demoing stuff for the last ten years, and try and record myself in a more modern way. I stumbled across that marimba loop which threads throughout the track and ‘Cafe D’Athens’ was the result. The band jammed it acouple times, and added some bits, I worked on it in Paris separately, and used a fretless bass for the first and probably last time.”

Foals’ new album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1, is out now and is the first of a pair of releases, separate but related, they share a title, themes and artwork, with Part 2 following in the Autumn. From playing chaotic house parties in their home city of Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals’ trajectory has been remarkable. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1 is now available on all formats here.

Foals recently wrapped the West Coast leg of their tour with Bear Hands and Kiev opening. Preoccupations will provide direct support, with Omni opening, on the second leg in cities including Brooklyn, Washington D.C., Boston, and Philadelphia (full details below). Tickets for all dates are on sale now here. The band will also perform a headline tour throughout the UK and Europe, and have sold out shows in cities including London, Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, and Glasgow (full dates below). The band has previously confirmed festival dates throughout North America including Mexico’s Vive Latino 2019 and Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival.

Profoundly tethered but possessing their own personalities, the two albums capture the most compelling, ambitious and cohesive creations that Foals – completed by Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys) – have ever produced. “They’re two halves of the same locket,” frontmanYannis Philippakis explains. “They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces.”

Eager to break the traditional pop song structure which they felt they were becoming increasingly tapered to, the 20 tracks defy expectation. There are exploratory, progressive-tinged tracks which occasionally break the 10-minute mark alongside atmospheric segues which make the music an experience rather than a mere collection of songs.  Yet the band’s renowned ability to wield relentless grooves with striking power also reaches new heights.
