Foals premiere video for Cafe D’Athens

Foals have premiered their video for Cafe D’Athens, taken from the recent album Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1.


The LP missed out by the narrowest of margins on becoming the band’s first UK number one, but nevertheless with Part 2 to come, ‘once welded the complete picture may be their sleekest, most intoxicating yet‘, according to Live4ever’s review:

“In thumbing their noses at the easy ways out it might’ve been expected that Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost would broker some kind of disconnect with the past, but on the meaty lead single Exits there’s a businesslike familiarity and directness, words about a species forced underground and bird-empty skies backed off in abundance to an expertly crafted, staccato piano riff and a fistful of their perfectly weighted afro and math rock trace elements.”

“It’s a statement song, one intent on reminding us that the now-quartet may be saying the end is nigh but that when it does go tits up they’ll still be standing.”
