Earlier today, British indie rockers Foals stopped by Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 spot to premiere their eagerly awaited new single, “Inhaler”—the first from their upcoming third album, Holy Fire—and in quick succession, have unveiled the accompanying music video through NME.
“It’s a lot to do with rhythm and basic movement. Dave [Ma] took a lot of influence from Japanese Butoh dancing and there is an almost sinister air to it. It’s a very homegrown video; we went to a special place that Dave converted,” said frontman Yannis Philippakis of the clip, which features the tattooing of breasts, fireworks on BMXs and some pretty impressive synchronized dancing.
“Inhaler” marks a noticeable tonal shift for Foals from their previous two LPs, Antidotes (2008) and Total Life Forever (2010), but the band have stated this is one of the heavier tracks of the new collection. Holy Fire is due out Feb. 12, 2013 via Warner Bros.
