Foals - Spanish Sahara

I keep coming back to the Foals album this year because it's so damn good. The band have really gone for a new sound with their second album, and it's a slower paced album with haunting melodies and powerful song writing. This song is exactly that, it starts of slow with spooky vocals and ever so slowly builds up, drawing me in and capturing my imagination with every listen.

The film clip to Spanish Sahara is so beautifully shot, you really get a cold isolated feeling especially with the mountains looming over the single figure walking along in the snow. Oh and the frozen ocean washing back and forth on the shore is visually one of the coolest things I've ever seen. It's a treat for the eyes as much as it is for the ears.
