Foals have released their third studio Holy Fire, much to the praise of fans and media alike. Music Feeds reviewer Dean Forte described Holy Fire as an “early contender for Album of the Year“, going on to say, “Foals have created an album that twists and turns… with an array of sounds at their disposal.”
The Guardian was equally as generous, rating Holy Fire 4 out of 5 stars and characterising the record as, “an album by a British guitar band who want to win a huge audience without writing chantalongs for the drinkers’ crowd, or lowest-emotional-common-denominator piano ballads.”
Foals themselves have stated that Holy Fire is “dirtier, swampier, and [contains] more booty shaking” than 2010 album Total Life Forever. Having recently wowed crowds as part of Big Day Out 2013 behind new singles My Number and Inhaler, it figures to be an impressive year for Foals.
