Foals (formed in 2005) is an English alternative and indie rock band, known for combining minimalist soundscapes with dance and new wave influences, hailing from Oxford, England.

Frontman Yannis Philippakis and drummer Jack Bevan were originally in the math rock band The Edmund Fitzgerald, before deeming it too serious and parting ways. Along with vocalist Andrew Mears, guitarist Jimmy Smith, and bassist Walter Gervers, Foals was formed in 2010. The group’s debut output was the 7” single “Try This on Your Piano/Look at My Furrows of Worry” released in 2006, after which vocalist Andrew Mears left Foals to concentrate on his other band Youthmovies. Following his departure, Philippakis took the leading role and began translating the influences of techno, Arthur Russell, The Redneck Manifesto, and the Talking Heads into their signature sound.

Foals’ debut full-length “Antidotes” was recorded in New York City with the TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and released in March 2008. Featuring cryptic themes and typically melancholy compositions, the album earned rave reviews from the majority if the musical press. Aided by the singles “Balloons”, “Cassius”, “Red Socks Pugie”, and “Olympic Airways”, the album peaked at No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart.

In 2009 Foals opened for Blur on their reunion show in Hyde Park, and played a host of festivals, including T in the Park and All Tomorrow’s Parties, to test out new material. The bands follow up album, “Total Life Forever”, appeared in 2010, led by the track “Spanish Sahara”, premiered by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. Once again receiving strong reviews the album was shortlisted for 2010 Mercury Prize and charted at No. 8 on the UK Albums Chart. The full-length “Holy Fire” was released in February 2013 produced by Flood and Alan Moulder. Using animal bones acquired from butcher’s shops for percussive accouterments, the album was led by the single “My Number”, and charted at No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart.
