Foals “Spanish Sahara”

Almost two years after the release of their debut album Antidotes British folks from Oxford’s Foals are entering the spotlight again with the follow-uph Total Life Forever due to be out on May 10 via Transgressive Records. Unfortunately that’s still months to go, but you can spend the time till then watching their new video, listening to a great remix of the same song and getting excited for their upcoming gigs.

Let’s start with the newly composed „Spanish Sahara“ and the video for it. The song is borne by a melancholic ease, which though and surprisingly is not rooted in the pacey and dynamic sound facets of Antidotes. In the beginning it’s the calm, hierarchically structured synthesizer samples and soft vocals slowly working out the song, later it’s the energetic drums leading to an emphatically deep sound re-created in the icy atmosphere of Dave Ma‘s (directed for The Horrors, Delphic and, too, the Foals before) video. Here singer Yannis Philippakis mimes a hunter pulling his booty on the banks.

It’s the track’s intensity British duo Mount Kimbie were hunting for while making an even expressive and impulsive dubstep mix for „Spanish Sahara“, which is really worth a listen and download.
