Now a little more info on the band. Foals is a five-piece dance-rock band from Oxford, England. The band, all in their early twenties, is made up of Yannis Philippakis (vocals/guitar), Edwin Congreave (keyboards), Walter Gervers (bass), Jimmy Smith (guitar), and Jack Bevan (drums). The name Foals was inspired by Yannis' surname (which means "little lover of horses" in Greek).
How lead singer Yannis describes the guitars:
“They’re meant to sound like insects,” says Yannis. “They’re played high on the fret board—we even hold our instruments up high. The result sounds like a cloud of insects forming these strange harmonies.
Here's the video for "Red Sock Pugie".
