[ Warner UK / LP ]
Release Date: Friday 17 June 2022
Antidotes is the debut from Foals.
Completing the circuit between the minimalism of American composer Steve Reich, guitars that sound like insects, and tennis player Andy Roddick, theirs is a uniquely winning formula. Driving percussion high in the mix, guitars played above the 12th fret, no chords, and splashes of synthesizer colour all come together like the schematics for a piece of precision engineering.
Features hit singles "Balloons", "Cassius", "Red Socks Pugie" and "Olympic Airways".
Limited recycled vinyl with splatter effect.
