Foals Cover Florence And The Machine's 'What Kind Of Man'

(Radio.com) Foals are the latest artist to turn in a great cover on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. The English rock band performed a blistering version of Florence + The Machine's "What Kind Of Man" from How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.

The band also incorporated a bit of the title track from their current album What Went Down into their cover. "Florence writes some serious vocal lines," says lead singer Yannis Philippakis, but he pulls it off.

Foals are on a roll, earlier this month the band was honored as Best Act in the World at the Q Awards, a distinction previously bestowed on to Coldplay, Muse, U2, and Radiohead. The band has handful of US dates remaining before the end of year, check them out and the cover performance here.
