Perfectly embodying the SoCal aesthetic, Foster the People sound like they’ve been around longer than one album. Their debut Torches was nominated for a VMA and catchy singles like Pumped Up Kicks set them up as poster boys for the laid back, fun-loving skate crowd.
If Beck and MGMT and Air and Air France made musical babies that were one-tenth Earth, Wind and Fire, they would probably sound like Foster the People. Named after lead singer Mark Foster, the band played big Foster the People tour dates at Lollapalooza and South by Southwest, solidifying their reputation and selling boatloads of Foster the People tickets.
Their visual style is as refined as their sound on videos like the one for Helena Beat which features a horde of dirty kids dressed like Mad Max who kidnap a man in a van escaping from the fiery skyline of Los Angeles and transmogrify him into a dirty kid like them. It’s the male adolescent version of Beyonce’s Run the World (Girls). See them now with Foster the People concert tickets from TIcketLiquidator!
