Honestly? Can't get enough of new Foals. These guys have been releasing one great track after another and it just makes me so happy how consistently good they are. "London Thunder" is a bit different from what we heard previously from their upcoming "What Went Down" (out this Friday yay!). It is definitely way more emotional and slower, and creates this melancholic homesick atmosphere. The track is actually perfect for gray rainy days, just as the title suggests.
The video has been recorded on CCTV and the whole footage idea just adds more melancholy, which in this case is a good thing.
"We’ve been to a lot of airports over the last few years, and sometimes there’s this cool melancholy to an airport at a certain hour of the evening. It’s about being away and having some sort of experience that changes you, and waiting to return, knowing that the world you’re returning to will be subtly different because you are."
