Foals cover Mark Ronson and Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker’s ‘Daffodils’ – watch

Band drop into Australian radio station Triple J

Foals have performed a cover of Mark Ronson and Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker’s ‘Daffodils’ in Australia.

The band showcased their take on the track, which you can watch above, during a live performance on alternative radio station Triple J.

It comes just weeks after Ronson and Parker performed their own cover of Queens Of The Stone Age‘s ‘I Sat By The Ocean’ on the same radio station.

Foals recently announced details of a one-off London gig later this month.


The band will play Village Underground on August 25, three days before the release of new album ‘What Went Down’. Explaining the reasons they want to play the gig, the band said they “wanted to play a sweaty London gig around the album release. One where we finally get to play some more new songs”.

‘What Went Down’ is due for release on August 28 and was recorded in the south of France with Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons, Mumford & Sons).

Giving NME a track-by-track rundown of the album, frontman Yannis Philippakis described the LP as “lean” and “punchy” and called ‘Mountain At My Gates’ “instantaneous”.

He elaborated: “This is the record that most closely mimics the sound in our heads. We wanted it to be lean. Both in the individual songs – less reverb, more punchy – but also as an album, so there wasn’t any negative space. We wanted to put the absolute best on there, and the 10 that made it are the ones that all of us were unanimous in liking.”
