Foster the People, Torches, Sony Music

<img class="alignright size-thumbnail wp-image-310″ title=”fosterthepeople” border=”0″ src=”″>Itmayhavebeenthe fact that their lead single “Pumped up Kicks” had the same sound and feel of fellow indie-rockers Peter Bjorn and John’s “Young Folks” that will leave some feeling cheated. Torches is an album that could be considered to be a bait-and-switch of sorts, there will be those looking for another indie rock album that will not like the 80’s synth-pop vibe that runs through the majority of the album. The debut album from Foster the People is a fluffy and fun offering that won’t be appreciated by those looking for another “Pumped Up Kicks”.
