This week we saw a return from Oxford Indie-rock quintet Foals, with a preview of their new single Mountain at My Gates from their upcoming album What Went Down, due for release later this year. After being announced as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record‘ it feels like Foals are stepping into the light once again after another year of obscurity. ‘Mountain at My Gates’ is a lively, catchy song, embodying all that I love about Foals’ music. It excites me as it feels like after what was a largely disappointing third album ‘Holy Fire‘, Foals have found their footing once again; and if this first track is anything to go by, I have really high hopes for Foals’ fourth album.
