Saying “I love you” to someone in oriental languages is a minefield of propriety and playfulness, and when Yannis sings, “It’s your heart that gives me this Western feeling”, seemingly, that’s what he’s on about – that ineffable state which transcends all linguistic rule. As one of ‘Total Life Forever’’s less fraught moments, ‘This Orient’ is pure warmth, the likes of which rarely emanates from Foals’ torrid tickers.
