SxRTD Song of the Day: Pumped Up Kicks

2016-09-14 15:55

Cape Town - Formed in Los Angeles in 2009 by multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Mark Foster, indie rock trio Foster the People make melodic and atmospheric, dance-oriented pop. 

Foster initially began the project alone, but before long he added long-term friend Cubbie Fink on bass and drummer Mark Pontius to complete the line-up. The following year, their single Pumped Up Kicks was posted on their website, picking up considerable buzz online and significant airplay on KROQ, alongside packed performances at the Texas musical festival SXSW. This inevitably attracted the attention of major labels, and eventually the band signed to Columbia imprint Startime International.
