New Video: Foals – My Number

When Foals released “Inhaler” at the tail end of last year, it presented the notoriously fiddly band in a new, empowered light. With it’s stadium sized chorus and noticeably heavier style, it caught people by surprise in the best possible way, creating immense anticipation for ‘Holy Fire’ (their forthcoming third record). Though “Inhaler” presented us with the direction Foals were heading in, second single “My Number” showed us that they weren’t completely leaving their past behind them, as we described it as:

A massive, shimmying beast of a song with a group vocals and noodling guitar lines. Vintage Foals.”

This week, less than a month before “Holy Fire” drops, a video for “My Number” has hit the web. In an alternative take on the stereotypical “live video”, the clip attempts to show all sides of the Foals live experience, flicking between dancing crowd, grubby toilet and the people left outside, as the camera work becomes increasingly distorted. Though perhaps not as interesting as the swimming pool related larks in the “Inhaler” video, the clip does the track justice through it’s imaginative style. You can check out the video below:
