This is another song from the new Foals album that I’ve grown to really like. The track is definitely aptly titled, as all I can think about is listening to this song on a rainy evening. There’s also something about the music that reminds me of the xx. Perhaps it’s the simplistic approach that the band has taken, with a complete focus on the melody.
I’ve posted the original version as well as a live recording of ‘London Thunder’. Both are worth checking out because on the original version the guitars are a lot more prominent, whereas it’s the synthesiser that really stands out on the live recording.
