Why do we like this?

Foals have unveiled a new track "Rain," ahead of its release as a Record Store Day exclusive on April 16.


The track was initially recorded during the sessions for their 2015 album What Went Down. A demo version surfaced last year, but the studio recording is now upon us.


This is straight up one of my favorite Foals tracks in a long while. It's so unpolished, so unlike the majority of what we heard on WWD, which most likely explains why it didn't make the cut. 


Opening on a choppy string loop, Yannis Philippakis’ echoed vocals bring in a beautiful, booming melody, backed by a distant yet demanding beat. Raw and evocative, the stripped back feel has a kind of unfiltered wildness to it.


I absolutely love every single thing about this piece. 


Foals will be releasing "Rain" as part of a 7" Record Store Day exclusive, along with a cover of "Daffodils" by Mark Ronson and Kevin Parker, which they first performed on Triple J's Like A Version.
