It’s getting near the end of 2013 and ever closer to our first annual best-of lists. So, in order to whet your appetite here’s one of my top contenders for single of the year.
February saw the release of Foals’ third album Holy Fire and it’s one of the few albums that has not been ruined by listening ad nauseam. The second single off the album, ‘My Number’, saw Yannis Phillippakis at his most earnest and confident. The lyrics aren’t obscured by any hash-smoke cerebral allegories; instead the band embraces a funk bassline and appears to be taking themselves less seriously. The result? Pure joy.
