DESCRIPTION

Written primarily in the basement of the Foals’ Oxford HQ (“The House Of Supreme Mathematics”) and recorded in Gothenburg with former Clor man Luke Smith, ‘Total Life Forever’ finds Foals singing rather than shouting, emotional as well as functional. The band’s soul-search reveals new antidotes found in infinite, internal spaces rather than carved violently upon the air — ‘Total Life Forever’ feels more the work of artists than artisans. It’s a triumph that they’ve managed to remain a band of progress and propulsion while investigating that vast, dark space lurking inside themselves — that gap between ribs where “nature, or god or whatever you wanna call it, will come in.”
