Oxford quintet Foals graduated in the class of 2008, when their debut album 'Antidotes' set them out as the smartest of the indie punk-funk pack, and – to judge by their latest record, 'Holy Fire' – have evolved into one of the country's finest alternative rock bands. Their unselfconscious intelligence and knack for smart, danceable pop tunes is now matched by a new love for sludgy riffs, funk grooves and organic improvisation, making them a fearsome live act.
