Oxford, England, United Kingdom
Formed in Oxford, England in 2005, the band Foals is a quintet of old friends who have spent time evolving their music, creating what one music journalist describes as "its poppy, jittery, upbeat, math rock/post-punk sound." Members Yannis Philippakis, Jack Bevan, Andrew Mears, Jimmy Smith, and Walter Gervers had grown tired of the "proggy" sound of the music emerging from the Oxford scene and decided to protest it by creating their own unique spin on contemporary music. They released their first single two years after forming the band and dropped their first full album (which they remixed themselves) in 2008. Since then, they have established an international fan base and released more recordings.
Thoughts on Songs with Foals

Being a part of a song, does not mean you cannot view it isolated from its whole body and get affected by the meaning that comes out of it. Like this one. It almost shakes my bones. There's a referance to "it" in a mologue, which is directed to another person. "It"? Yes fool, it might as well be love.
