After the blood pumping 'What Went Down', Foals have released the second track from their upcoming fourth LP, and it's another solid outing.
I previously likened 'What Went Down' with Holy Fire lead single 'Inhaler', and in my mind 'Mountain At My Gates' also holds similarities to the second single 'My Number'. Whilst both of the first tracks pushed aggression as the main selling point, the follow ups both push for groovier, more danceable numbers. Not as commercial as its counterpart, 'Mountain At My Gates' is a sure sign of the band's progression and their maturity as songwriters, but keeps their aesthetic and ability to write jangly indie hits.
What Went Down is out on 28th August 2015 via Warner Music, and I am eager to see what else it holds.
