Foals are a rock band which formed in Oxford, England in 2005. The band consists of Yannis Philippakis (vocals, guitar), Jimmy Smith (guitar), Walter Gervers (bass), Edwin Congreave (keyboards) and Jack Bevan (drums). The band has released four albums: "Antidotes" (2008), "Total Life Forever" (2010), "Holy Fire" (2013) and "What Went Down" (2015).

The band was formed in 2005 by Philippakis and Bevan, both former members of math rock band The Edmund Fitzgerald, and Andrew Mears of Youthmovies. Mears left the band after their first single to focus on Youthmovies.

In early 2007, the band released the limited edition 7" singles Hummer and Mathletics, both produced by Gareth Parton. In the summer of 2007 Foals began working on their debut album in New York. It was produced by Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio, however, the band decided to mix the album themselves, stating that Sitek made the first master copy of the album sound like "it was recorded in the Grand Canyon". Yannis has stated multiple times during various interviews that Foals and Dave Sitek are on good terms, even though the copy by Sitek was rejected by the band.

Foals released their debut album, entitled Antidotes, on 24 March 2008 in the UK and 8 April 2008 in the US. The album was a commercial success in the United Kingdom, debuting at No. 3 in the UK Albums Charts. The album was a minor success in other countries, charting in Japan, France and the Netherlands. Non-UK versions of the album include the early Parton produced singles.

In August 2009, Foals started recording their second album at Svenska Grammofon Studion in Gothenburg, Sweden. The album, Total Life Forever, has been described by the band members as sounding like "tropical prog" and "like the dream of an eagle dying". The band have described the album as being "a lot less funk" than they had originally planned. The album was produced by Luke Smith, formerly of Clor, and its title is named after an element of Ray Kurzweil's theory of singularity. The band's frontman Yannis Philippakis has professed a long time interest in futurology, with it informing numerous songs on Total Life Forever.

On 1 March 2010, the promotional single "Spanish Sahara" was first played on Zane Lowe's show Radio 1. Foals' new website was updated that night with the release of a video for the track directed by longtime collaborator Dave Ma. On 6 March, the Total Life Forever site was officially launched. Puzzles revealed images, lyrics and sound clips of songs from the album. The last clip appeared on 12 March, and resulted with a password entry for the Foals' new website. The site was opened on 13 March and presented the whole new art concept and media including samples of songs, photos and videos. Lead single "This Orient" was released on 3 May 2010. The album was finally released on 10 May 2010. "Spanish Sahara" was later released as a full physical single in September 2010, featuring an edited remix starring the strings of London Contemporary Orchestra. The album was nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize.

My Number
by Foals

You don't have my number
We don't need any trouble now
We don't need the city
Who create all the culture now

'Cause I feel, I feel alive
I feel, I feel alive
I feel the streets are all pulling me down

So people of the city
I don't need your counsel now
And I don't need that good advice
'Cause you don't have my lover's touch

You don't have my number
We don't need any trouble now
Who create all the culture
We can move beyond it now

Now the wolves is knocking at my door
Bang-bangin', ask for more
Stand here we stand tall
We could move beyond these walls

I don't need your counsel
And I don't need these city streets
And I don't need that good advice
'Cause we can move beyond it now!

You don't have my number
We don't need any trouble now
Create all the culture
You don't have my lover's touch

'Cause I feel, I feel alive
I feel, I feel alive
I feel the streets are not far from here

Do you even hear me?
Do you even know my name?
Can we see the ocean now?
(You don't have my lovers touch)





Can you, can you hear me?
Now you're really listening now

'Cause you don't have my number
And we don't need each other now
You can't steal my phone though
'Cause you don't have my lovers touch

You don't have my number
And I don't need no one now
And I don't need these city streets
Who create all the culture now
