My Number


Another day, another new-ish band. Foals have been around since 2005, gathering momentum with the current indie rock wave. This would be their big radio hit from 2012. None of their singles since then have made much of a dent, but they’re only four albums in and have plenty of time to resurface or sink. I don’t know if frontman Yannis Philippakis’ habit of throwing shade at more successful British peers is a help or a hindrance to ongoing popularity, but not playing nice with Spotify is definitely not a great career move. On the other hand, just the fact of having made four albums is a sign of consistency and staying power, those things being in rather short supply in our age of instant gratification and fast fashion.
