Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks

Ok, hands up who thought Athlete were the undisputed kings of the irritating summertime song? Well my friends, there’s a new kid on the block! Introducing Foster The People with their track Pumped Up Kicks.

Different-sized dollops of Snow Patrol, Eels, Ladyhawke, Doves, Morning Runner, The Postal Service and MGMT make up Foster the People and this track in particular borrows a big chunk of its chorus straight from Empire of the Sun.

It’s “nice”. I wish I had a better word to describe it, but “nice” is exactly right. Whether “nice” is enough when the sun goes down remains to be seen.
