WATCH: Foals - 'What Went Down'


Following my post last week about the announcement of a new Foals record, here's the video for the first track to be released, the title track of the record, What Went Down, which was given its first radio play yesterday evening on Radio 1. Whilst perhaps not their best track (a title which is, in fairness, pretty hard to claim), there's no denying its quite the tune and will be a crowd pleaser when the charming indie rockers take the new record on tour. An interesting discussion from lead vocalist and guitarist Yannis Philippakis with Annie Mac following the first play of the track last night brought up the beastly, animalistic nature of the track, a slightly heavier style which the band have incorporated into the record, whilst still keeping in touch with the upbeat rock and brilliant riffs that fans have come to love.

What Went Down is released on 28th August through the lovely folk at Transgressive Records, and you can find the links to pre-order it on various formats here.
