Riff: Foals – “Providence”

Feb 12, 2013

I know I cannot be true/I’m an animal, just like you/Oh I’ll bleed just a little bit too

from Providence lyrics by Foals

Finally delivering on the prog front, Foals go all animalistic on a towering blend of disjointed breakbeats, jagged guitar riffs & funk grooves that eventually builds up into a cacophony of noise in keeping with the primal howls & repetitive ‘everyone bleeds the same’ refrain.
