Foals Top Radio Chart With New Single 'Mountain At My Gates'

(BBGP) Foals' new single "Mountain At My Gates" has reached the No. 1 spot at Specialty Radio, debuting at the top position on the FMQB SubModern Singles chart.

The song was also the No. 1 most added at Alternative Radio and will be featured as influential Los Angeles station KCRW's Top Tune on August 4th.

This news follows the release of a brand new video for the song directed by Nabil who is best known for his work with Kanye West, Arctic Monkeys, Frank ocean, and Alt-J.

Foals and Nabil partnered with GoPro for the innovative video, which was shot entirely on GoPro's spherical Virtual Reality technology. This marks the first use of GoPro's new VR technology on a music video production. Throughout the video's spectacular visuals, Foals interact with and perform to the viewer in a fully immersive way in which we're able to experience their performance through multiple perspectives.

Produced by James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Florence + the Machine), 'Mountain At My Gates' builds from the leftfield grooves and angular art-rock that characterized previous Foals' anthems such as 'My Number' and 'Spanish Sahara'. This time, however, the quintet subverts expectations by twisting the track into a frenzied finale with a cacophony of sound. The track is featured on the band's forthcoming fourth album 'What Went Down'. Watch the video here.
