A foal is an equine, particularly a horse, that is one year old or younger. More specific terms are colt for a male foal and filly for a female foal. Foals on the other hand are an English indie rock band from Oxford, England. They just released their third album Holy Fire on 11 February 2013, and I keep going over it again and again. They’re also darn good live!
I’m music-sessed with this band right now, and I crave more MORE .. here’s the spiel and two tunes that are on major repeat right now inside brain ..
Artist London Grammar
AlbumMetal & Dust EP & Wasting My Young Years EP
LabelMetal & Dust Recordings
WhoHannah, Daniel, and Dot
What else The story began in Nottingham university’s Lancaster Hall where the band met – Hannah set up third member Dan Rothman with his girlfriend, who in turn introduced him to Dot and a few jam sessions later London Grammar was born. ..
AND NOW OFF TO THE VIDEOS
Song Hey Now. This is their first single, and it is infec-tu-ouso.
Song Wasting My Young Years. Now this song, is where the obsession kicks in. It is absolute perfection, from lyrics to vocals, to presentation. The video is amazing!!! It was shot on 35mm film, using a ‘homemade’ camera rig consisting of 625 individual pinhole cameras that are exposed at the same time. If like me, you want to know “how did they DO that” see the behind the scenes film here: vimeo.com/66229810
Where From New York hailing from Germany, England, and the United States
Who Nini Fabi, Ben Gebert, Garrett Ienner, Derek McWilliams, and Jonathan Schmidt
What else This is the ultimate summer song .. heck, I’m tagging it #theultimatesummersongof2013 Also, this is only their second song release (after the also catchy Wings) and theyre currently on the road with Atlas Genius.. feels like a to-be-continued..
What else Olivia Sebastianelli was signed on to Sony at the age of 17 but left when they tried to turn her into Katy Perry… and as she says “There’s already a Katy Perry so what’s the point of another one?” (.. you go girl)
What else Explores the mental turmoil and panic one feels the morning after a one-night stand, waking up with a stranger in your bed that won’t wake and that you need gone, and your girlfriend calling repeatedly on the phone.
