Foals will release next single ‘Balloons’ on the 10th of December, as the race for Christmas number one heats up.
They might not be calling it a fistfight yet, but those Foals boys aren’t given to novelty or nostalgia and Argos’ Christmas song, with its “sleigh bells” and “children’s choirs”, would seem to specialise in both.
The war of ideas will commence, minus the forebiting, about a month from now, but for the moment revel in this, the Dave Ma-produced video for the first cut from Foals’ Sitek-helmed debut record.
