Foals Content with Time on ‘A Knife in the Ocean’ [Stream]

Foals – A Knife in the Ocean

With reaching lyrics and sublime sounds, “A Knife in the Ocean” contends with time, its unrelentingness and inescapable destructiveness. Clocking in at nearly 7 minutes, the track relies on a slow and steady unfurling of energy and angst, as lead singer Yannis Philippakis laments with existential desperation, “What came of the things we once believed? Oh all lost to the depths of the hungry sea.” Fresh off the press, the rest of Foals’ fourth album What Went Down can be found everywhere.
