Foals Debut Music Video For New Single IN DEGREES

Today, Foals share the music video for their new single, "In Degrees," directed by Aaron Brown (Arctic Monkeys, King Krule), off their most recent album, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1. With frenetic, clattering percussion and propulsive bass underpinning the band's urgent energy, "In Degrees" is both a song about faltering interpersonal relationships and an increasingly warming planet.

As lead singer Yannis Philippakis revealed:
"Essentially it's about when you're aware of a relationship slowly slipping away, incrementally bit by bit, there's no a big dramatic moment, but it's through the slow drifting apart. And also, the actual phrase "in degrees" also got me thinking that it could work on a due level about the environment in a way as well."

Music video director Aaron Brown adds:
"What excited me about the track "In Degrees" was the dance feel that Foals were doing in contrast to the lyrics. They've always had some of that danceability in their music but this track is a no holds barred, make no mistake about it, post-punk, four on the floor, dance track. In contrast to the music though, is a solemn verse and brooding chorus."

Foals' latest Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1, is out now via Via Warner Bros. Records. The album is the first of a pair of releases, separate but related, which share a title, themes and artwork, with 'Part 2' following in the Autumn. From playing chaotic house parties in their home city of Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, Foals' trajectory has been remarkable. They've earned critical acclaim (NME and Q Award wins, plus Mercury Prize, Ivor Novello and BRIT Award nominations) and fan devotion (1.7 million sales of their four Gold-certified albums, plus over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015) in equal measure. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost - Part 1 is now available on all formats here.

Profoundly tethered but possessing their own personalities, the two albums capture the most compelling, ambitious and cohesive creations that Foals - completed by Jimmy Smith (guitar), Jack Bevan (drums) and Edwin Congreave (keys) - have ever produced. "They're two halves of the same locket," frontman Yannis Philippakis explains. "They can be listened to and appreciated individually, but fundamentally, they are companion pieces."
