Welcome to the second of ClashMusic.com’s expanded take on our magazine brother’s Culture Clash feature, giving readers an insight into what makes their favourite acts tick.
Last time: Simian Mobile Disco. This time: Edwin Congreave from Oxford five-piece Foals lists his cultural faves.
The band – whose debut album ‘Antidotes’ is, in this writer’s opinion, one of the best of the year – release a new single next week. Pick up ‘Olympic Airwaves’ on October 6, released via Transgressive. Watch the video on ClashMusic.com by clicking HERE.
