Foals is a one of those bands that produces contagiously energetic, jump-worthy tracks and they put on one hell of a rock show. Last summer, they released their fourth album, What Went Down, which is full of pulsating drumbeats, fiery vocals, and guitar chords on overdrive. The British rock band decided to surprise everyone by releasing their new single, "Rain," which shows a more restrained version of Foals by replacing heavy drums and guitar richness with twinkly synth blends that puts frontman Yannis Philippakis' vocals on full-display. "Rain" was presumably recorded around the same time as What Went Down but is being released as a 7" to celebrate Record Store Day, along with a cover of Mark Ronson and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker's collab for "Daffodils."
