I quite like this song by Foals called "Olympic Airways" – it kinda reminds me of early Tears For Fears.
I'm not really a hardcore treehugger, but what I don't like about the video is that the boys seem to make a right mess of the lovely greenery they decided to do their video shoot in. I hope they cleaned it all up. And what is that shizz about throwing a dead squid into the fire all about? I know they are going for the weird chic factor here, but I don't think it's really all that artistic. I'm sure I'm missing something here.
Great lush song. Think MGMT vs. Metronomy – but totally questionable art direction.
Foals are another one that are highly tipped for 2009.
