Foals crashed onto the scene in 2008. They had success with their infectious hit singles Balloons (2007), Cassius (2008), Red Socks Pugie (2008) and Olympic Airways (2008).
The five-piece, who formed in 2005, dropped their first album in 2008 in the form of Antidotes. They released Holy Fire in 2013, a follow-up to the successful Total Life Forever, and the band returned to studio to release What Went Down (2015).
The band, fronted by Yannis Philippakis, are said to be influenced by an array of artists spanning a number of genres, which is shown by their tracks which mix rock, pop, dance, punk, and experimental rock to create lyrics and music that carries weight and explores a number of sounds.
