Foster The People

I’ve been pretty slack with Pluck lately, although in all fairness it has been a quiet period in Australian music. I call it post-new-years-festivals-lineup-announcements-depression. Basically we already know most of the big bands that will be touring here during the remainder of the year, and there are no big Aussie releases coming up either.

I promise a proper new post in the next couple of days, but in the meantime here is a random song from LA band Foster The People that has been doing the rounds on the interwebs the past couple of months (I am nothing if not timely) and is about to be released as a single.

It’s called Pumped Up Kicks and I’m kind of obsessed with it. In a year that has been dominated by mediocre ‘bedroom pop’ music, this song nails the lo-fi sound perfectly, and the results are spectacular. Essential listening for anyone who hasn’t already heard it.
