Kreativer, erfrischender Indie-Electro-Pop. Es lassen sich zwar Assoziationen zu MGMT oder The Naked And Famous herstellen, dennoch hochinteressante Band! 5*
****
Wird die zweite Single aus Torches...akzeptables Stück der Indie Pop-Band, Stimme ist hier etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig...ihr Call It What You Want gefällt mir besser – aufgerundete 3.5...
****
pretty good
*****
Mooie opvolger van Pumped up Kicks
******
Meer zomers dan deze mannen hun muziek maken krijg je niet.
****
leuk
*****
I don't particularly like the vocals, I find them more annoying than in Pumped Up Kicks, but it's probably due to myself being not used to them. Overall it's a solid track. 4

EDIT: Grown on me quite to the point where I enjoy the quirky vocals. I love the use of the synth, it's very cool and the production of the track is very well done with the upbeat combination of percussion, synth and vocals.

Cool song.

...auch dies ein zügiger Titel der Amerikaner, jedoch gefällt mir hier die Stimme nicht so sehr ...
****
Enjoy this song, but nowhere near to the way that I enjoy Pumped Up Kicks.
*****
Stimme bisschen gewöhnungsbedürftig aber ansonsten schöner Opener ihres Debut Albums! 4.5

Verdammt gut.

Okay song.

Der Song gefällt mir sehr gut, interessante Melodie. Knappe 5*

Ein etwas hektischer Opener, ihr Gesang macht aber vieles wieder wett.

"It's kind of about the dichotomy between partying and the keeping your life together at the same time. I see that a lot in Los Angeles, people looking really good and they've got this big smile on their faces but they're so wasted they can barely get into the car." Mark Foster: FOSTER THE PEOPLE

Peaked at #74 in Australia, 2011.

Peaked at #40 on my personal chart.

Came in at #173 on my TOP 200 OF 2011.

Still like this track a lot but still can't understand how they didn't put 'Call It What You Want' on the JJJ compilation.

An absolutely stunning track, this is Foster The People's best song. A confronting, original beat interlaced with Mark's very unique vocals takes this to a whole new place. Love the hook in the chorus, love the concept of the song and the video is great as well. One of the top 5 tracks of 2011 for me.

Sagt mir überhaupt nichts.

Klingt mir zu sehr nach FM4, läuft bei diesem Sender ja auch rauf und runter.
******
Geniale Nummer, gefällt mir noch besser als "Pumped up kicks".
****
The song's likeable, and catchy if you listen to it enough...The 'turning into a child' concept at the end of the music video was already taken 17 years ago by my username's namesake.
***
Mittelmäßig, jedoch der Gesang ist fast schon Bohlenmäßig schlimm. Knapp 3*.
*****
Gut.
****
For a while I had this confused with "Call It What You Want" for some strange reason. Enjoyable but the vocals grate a little.
****
4 stars

Starker Opener von "Torches" (2011).
******
Everything about this is just magical. Great vocals as usual from Mark Foster, lyrical flow is great, and the chorus doesn't get old despite being repeated to many times. I love that instrumental bridge so much too. Still my favourite Foster The People track, and it might always be that way.
