Song of the Day: Foals - Inhaler

This new Foals single isn't half bad, is it? There's nothing quite like a pre-chorus that tricks you into thinking it's the chorus, before the real deal comes in and blows your face off. The element of surprise: I like it.

In case you were either in a coma or deserted island sans internet in 2010, you're probably already aware of them from all the hype that built around their record Total Life Forever (ok, that only really counts if you were living in the UK). Their much-loved sophomore effort cropped up on tons of 'best of 2010' lists in England, and got a little indie love from Pitchfork State-side too. The general consenus was that they'd stepped it up from 2008's Antidote.

In any case, they seem to be growing and moving their sound in a heavier direction if this track is anything to go by. It's coming off LP Holy Fire, set to be released in February 2013 on Transgressive Records. Head to their site for more info on that. And if you're in the UK at the moment, they're on a sold out tour at the end of the month before they skip down to Australia for more dates into the new year. Click here for the details.
