Mountain at my Gates
I can’t remember who first introduced me to Foals, but it was somewhere around 2011. I know this because in 2011, I had a lot going on in my life and went to a lot of shows as a distraction. It was also the same year that I took a six month break from running, and music played a pretty big part in my life that year.
During that time, I saw Foals in concert. They were the headliner, but I was more interested in the opening acts that day. The openers were two of my absolute favorites at the time: Freelance Whales (hit song you might know is called Hannah), and The Naked & The Famous (check out Young Blood, I’m sure you’d know it). When Foals came on, I remember thinking that my friend and I were quite possibly the only sober people in the crowd. Pretty sure most people in that audience were on some sort of recreational drug, and it makes sense if you listen to their previous albums.
As far as the band goes, I don’t know too much about them because I haven’t listened to their albums extensively. I have most of their albums and they are all quite catchy, but until they dropped this single they were off my radar. I can’t get this song out of my head, and I figured it was time to share it! Hope you enjoy it!
