Foster The People: Coming of Age

Foster The People: Stupid name, great band.

You may remember them for Pumped Up Kicks and Call It What You Want - spiky, percussive pop songs with killer hooks.

Led by Mark Foster, the trio took a two-year break after the success of their debut album Torches in 2011, but luckily they haven't spent the time off "working on their sound" (always a euphamism for "making our sound worse"). Their comeback single Coming Of Age is as summery and celebratory as its predecessors, with a guitar riff that would have made Duran Duran proud (in 1984).

The band always make brilliant videos - my favourite being Houdini, where the band die in a tragic lighting rig accident, and the record label replaces them with robots - but we'll have to wait and see what they produce for this song. In the meantime, here's a still-impressive timelapse of a giant mural being painted on the side of a building in their hometown of Los Angeles.
