The heaviness of “Inhaler”, the first single off Foals’ new album Holy Fire caught me slightly off-guard. I wasn’t sure what to expect from there. Well, the band have shared another cut from the album, the bouncy “My Number”, which they played live already.
While “Inhaler” was a heavy brooding song, “My Number” hits closer to the home that Foals captured on their first two albums. It moves and grooves with some incredible guitar riffs and rhythms. Try to fight the urge to move to this song. Your attempts are useless.
If Holy Fire can find a perfect balance of immense stuff and angular dance stuff, we could be in for one hell of an album.
