Los Angeles based trio, Foster the People, will release their first EP January 18th on StarTime International. The self-titled release will feature the bands noteworthy tune, ‘Pumped Up Kicks,’ and two new, equally infectious, tracks: ‘Helena Beat’ and ‘Houdini.’
The band first caught the attention of fans early last year when they self-released their track ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ on their website for friends to share. One fan passed along to another and soon enough it ended up in the hands of editors at NME, Blackbook, Nylon, the Guardian, virally spreading not only across town but across seas. A few spins later, by Sirus’ Alt Nation and KCRW and the “outrageously catchy melody,” as the Guardian calls it, made it’s way to becoming the track of the summer.
