Foals: London Thunder

Foals are a five-piece dance-rock band currently living in Brighton. Yannis Philippakis, Edwin Congreave, Walter Gervers, Jimmy Smith and Jack Bevan met in their native Oxford, where they bonded over a shared sense of humour. Bored with the interchangeable electro records they heard at every party, they decided to make the kind of music they wanted to dance to. Frontman Yannis Philippakis is said to have been inspired by themes of “cultural identity, generational anxiety, cynicism, pessimism and heartbreak,” according to a press release. “I wanted to tap into my inner madman,” he says, “and feel like I was channeling some sort of fevered creature.”

Foals: London Thunder Lyrics:
I’m on the red eye fly to nowhere good
How about you?

I’ve been in the air for hours
Meteor showers by the pool

So one last drink for summer
Always leaving never you

Come back to London thunder
The sound of sirens in my room

And now the tables turn
It’s over
And with my fingers burned
I start a new
And now I’ve come back down
I’m older
I look for something else
To hold on to

There is no way to realign
The post of skin I take back every line

Lost my mind in San Fransisco
The worn out disco when tempers cooled

There is no water there is no sound
Will you come around?
Will you come around?

There is no space there is not time
Where’d you draw the line?

And now the tables turn
It’s over
And with my fingers burned
I start a new
And now I’ve come back down
I’m older
I look for something else
To hold on to

I’m on the red eye fly to nowhere good
How about you?
