This Year's Best New Song...This Week is.......drumroll......."My Number" by the British Band, Foals! If you haven't heard it yet, it's got a dance groove with plenty of synth to go along with some great vocal harmonies and lots of snair and hi-hat. Sounds like a good recipe. We'll be spinning the song Monday through Friday at 8:10a, 12:10p, 6:10p and 10:10p.
The song comes off the band's third studio album "Holy Fire" which released in the UK in February, reaching #2 on the UK Album Charts.
You can find more out about the band by hitting up their official site here. Check back next week for the next new song-of-the-week pick!
