VIDEO: Foals perform “Milk & Black Spiders” off new album, ‘Holy Fire’
On the same day Oxford-based Foals released their anticipated third album Holy Fire, they also uploaded a video for one of my favorite new tracks “Milk & Black Spiders” which you can view now.
This song gives a good representation of the growth the band has achieved since 2008′s debut Antidotes .
Buy the new album from Amazon. Their Amazon Bio on the album reads:
Detroit. Willesden. Olympos, on the Greek island of Karpathos. “The inside of our skulls”. These are the places that make up Holy Fire, Foals third album, their most direct and fully realised album yet. Foals have stepped up from, as Yannis puts it, “songs for indie clubs” to something much, much bigger. Their third album might not sound like Depeche Mode or Nine Inch Nails, but it has much of the same ambitious spirit and grandiose aesthetic that led to those groups touching the lives of millions. This is the sound of Foals arriving.
