Foster the People - Torches

I know it's been quite some time since I have posted, but this new band DEFINATELY deserves a post because I am obsessed with them. They are the perfect summer band for me and I'd like to personally thank Mr. Matthew Laptew for the tip-off!

If you like Passion Pit then you will DEFINATELY like Foster the People!
Foster the People is an indie/pop band from California best known for their song Pumped Up Kicks. This upbeat and catchy little dance number has been on my radar for quite some time and with one "Hey, Allison listen to this - Helena Beat" the whole album became mine. Unfortunately, I can't find a whole lot of information on them because they are just gaining popularity, but I definately recoment taking a listen.
Much like Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos, lead singer Mark Foster's voice will throw you off guard for a minute with his intense high pitched falcettos, but I promise it will grow on you. Comprised moslty of dance numbers, and some dance-like ballads [IE: I Would Do Anything For You] this album is the dance/pop lovers wet dream.
