Listen: Foals unveil dark, emotional new single ‘Into The Surf’

Foals have released another new single called “Into The Surf.”

The glimmering new tune revolves around a cold, eerie instrumental line with effect-heavy ambient noises below frontman Yannis Philippakis’ deep, silky vocals.

“There are threads that run through all these [final] songs, and on ‘Into the Surf’ there’s this shadow of death, of someone not returning from a voyage,” Philippakis explains to DIY Magazine. “There’s a type of Greek folk song that’s always to do with the immigration of Greek people and how dying on foreign shores is always viewed as the worst fate – to die away from your home and your family. ‘Surf Pt I’ [from the first record] is a chop out part of ‘Into the Surf’ and I thought it was nice to have that link as a tease.”

Listen to “Into The Surf” below.

Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2 is set for release on October 18th.
