Watch Foals comeback video for ‘This Orient’ on NME.COM now

Band release clip ahead of new album

Foals have made their new video for forthcoming single ‘This Orient’ available to watch on NME.COM now.

The band had previously released track ‘Spanish Sahara’ as a teaser from their second album ‘Total Life Forever’, which is released on May 10.

The clip was filmed earlier this month with director Dave Ma – who was worked with the likes of The Horrors and Delphic along with Foals before – in east London.

“This Saturday gone we filmed the video for the first proper single from the new record,” singer Yannis Philippakis explained of the track that is released on May 3. “It was, I think, the smoothest and least stressful shoot that we’ve been involved in so far.”

He added: “There was even a time for an hour long lunch break, apparently because some of the technical crew were members of a union – a step towards what I can only assume is some kind of a tasty socialist utopia, where everyone enjoys free meatballs and actually gets paid for the 16-hour days they work.”

Watch the video in full on the right now.
