Foster The People: Smells like MGMT
By: Camilo Leiva.
Illustration by: Bárbara Valdés.
 
A few seconds listening the album “Torches”, from the trio consists of Mark Foster (keyboards and vocals), Mark Pontius (drums) and Cubbie Fink (bass), you may discover that sounds like a MGMT version 2.0. If you don’t believe me compare the theme “Waste”, with the song “Weekend Wars” (from the album “Oracular Spectacular”), and see that this californians sounds more than once to his colleagues before entering the study. Even Andrew VanWyngarden, MGMT frontman mentioned that “Torches”, reminds the beginning of his group.
The sound of this band is a mixture of indie rock with catchy choruses too, which makes the songs linger in your mind. That happened to Rivers Cuomo (lead singer of Weezer), who declared fan of Foster The People, and so he did a cover of the song “Pumped Up Kicks”, I think it was much better than the original. 
Currently, they just released his new single “Houdini” and continue traveling around the world promoting his album.

El sonido de esta banda, es una mezcla de rock indie con coros muy pegadizos, lo que hace que las canciones te queden dando vuelta en la cabeza.

Actualmente, acaban de sacar su nuevo single “Houdini”, y continúan viajando por el mundo promocionando su disco.
