Foals – Holy Fire

Foals - Holy Fire

Foals seemingly went huge this year off the back of this muscular third album. According to their Twitter feed, they played something like 155 live shows. They still struggle to finish an album strongly (see also Total Life Forever) but when this was good, it was very good – adrenalin-charged lead single Inhaler, the funky My Number and build-and-release epic Milk & Black Spiders all highlights.
