Riff: Foals – “Out Of The Woods”

Feb 12, 2013

It’s times like these when I’m on my way/Out of the woods/Never felt better then when I’m on my way

from Out Of The Woods lyrics by Foals

Backed by a vintage New Order-ish bassline, Philipakkis shouts from the rooftops about the sense of relief he feels since overcoming a tricky ordeal. Which might explain why he seems to have taken his foot off the gas on a lifeless art-rock number which can only be described as unremarkable filler.
