((Foals)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

British newspaper The Telegraph ran a headline that read "Foals: Are They The New Radiohead?" Geez, they take their hype seriously over there. Never mind that this band sounds absolutely nothing like Radiohead. Oxford's Foals are five guys that play noodling math-pop with a splash of synthy spazz that you can dance to. Not exactly the formula to sell millions of records.

Their songs are indie-rock melodic with enough really interesting guitar parts that critics will inevitably call them "arty." You know, like how Bloc Party was "arty." For Foals, think Battles meets Les Savy Fav meets Maps and Atlases.

Their upcoming album will be released on Sub Pop in spring of 2008, and this record will certainly take their hype to a new level. So to be prescient, I propose the question first, "Foals: Are They The New Elvis Presley?"
