Foals Debut Music Video For New Single ‘In Degrees’

Today, Foals share the music video for their new single, In Degrees,” directed by Aaron Brown (Arctic Monkeys, King Krule), off their most recent album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1. With frenetic, clattering percussion and propulsive bass underpinning the band’s urgent energy, “In Degrees” is both a song about faltering interpersonal relationships and an increasingly warming planet.

As lead singer Yannis Philippakis revealed:

“Essentially it’s about when you’re aware of a relationship slowly slipping away, incrementally bit by bit, there’s no a big dramatic moment, but it’s through the slow drifting apart. And also, the actual phrase “in degrees” also got me thinking that it could work on a due level about the environment in a way as well.” 

Music video director Aaron Brown adds:

“What excited me about the track “In Degrees” was the dance feel that Foals were doing in contrast to the lyrics. They’ve always had some of that danceability in their music but this track is a no holds barred, make no mistake about it, post-punk, four on the floor, dance track. In contrast to the music though, is a solemn verse and brooding chorus.”
