Philippakis: “Musically ‘2am’ is one of the poppiest songs we’ve ever written.
It’s about repetitive cycles of destructive behaviour, which I think lots of people
can relate to, and certainly, it’s an expression of something that I struggle with.
There’s something cathartic about expressing that feeling to this upbeat music
that’s got a sense of release and the hope of resolution.”

A high-powered Foals show again that they’re a fervent funk machine.
Get up and shake your booty, folks…
