Single Review – Foals – A Knife In The Ocean

Foals release the third track from their August 28th album What Went Down with ‘A Knife in The Ocean’. It’s a much longer effort at over six minutes long and is a more considered and drawn out song with lingering bass lines, echoed percussion and washed out guitars from which Yannis’ vocals soar above. This expansive production is reeled in and out to reveal an isolated vocal and bass section before hit it’s peak of atmospheric power with the escalating instrumentation increasing in volume and leading the vocals to a more powerful end too. This track may be a slow burner, but it’s build up and washed out power is very prominent despite not being direct. A very solid track indeed.
