Foals upload Late Night video

   Foals have uploaded the official video for Late Night, one of my favourite songs on their new album Holy Fire. The video itself is rather disturbing in my opinion. I understand the whole circle of life idea behind the video, but there are some pretty graphic images included; a woman in labour, a suicide, a sex scene and Yannis in a suit... Check it out!



  1. I actually quite like the video. I think (besides being quite explicit) it portrays the message quite well. When i watched it i immediately thought of 'everyone has blood on their hands' because in each section of the video there is hurt - the woman in labour, the man who kills himself and the woman who scratches her lover. Something about the video makes gives the lyrics a much deeper meaning 'oh i hoped you were somebody, somebody i could count on'
    the woman in labour can count on her baby - its a piece of her after all
    the lovers can count on each other
    but the man who kills himself has no one to count on (love) and i think by showing his suicide it brings the message forward that everyone needs love

    Maybe i'm wrong but i think foals's lyrics are perceptive and interpretted individually, and this is my opinion. Great blogging by the way, keep it up!

  2. I agree, that's an interesting way to look at it. Well said!
    Thanks, I appreciate it, I intend to!
