Totally Tubular Music! NEW FOSTER THE PEOPLE

Foster The People


"Best Friend"

Foster The People released  their official music video for "Best Friend" today on their youtube channel.  The single Best Friend is off their latest album Supermodel, which is now available for purchase on iTunes and in store. Watch the official music video "Best Friend" below. 

Our Take!
We love this song and the music video defiantly goes along with it. Sticking to the supermodel theme, the video follows the best friend who is a supermodel who consumes other models for their beauty. Is the band trying to say something about the beauty industry? Watch the video below, and tell us what you think?

Lyrics

"Best Friend"

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You'll do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

Feeling, sleeping, in the field again,
Oh, I can feel, I can feel, I can feel, it's beginning to end
Yeah, premonition smiling in the dark
Oh, I can see, I can see, I can see the story's starting to arc

Ohhh ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh

It dries up
I've been a spoken word
I've been a river bed
I've been a rabid force
And let it flow up from within
Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white
Ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhhhh, ahhhhh
And colors so...

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You'll do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, you say it's what you need
And hide your eyes when you're close to me
(When you feel up in the clouds)
Well, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

Waves in theta, slipping into dreams
Oh, I can feel, I can feel, I can feel the celestial beings
Wilted pleasures leave you with a breath
I can see, I can see, I can see the beauty in the mess

Ohhh, ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhh

It dries up
I've been a river bed
I tried to salt the wound
I've carried more than I can
I feel I've got a lot to prove
Sometimes I feel like I only dream in black and white
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhhh, ohhh
But colors so....

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You'll do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, you say it's what you need
You hide your eyes when you're close to me
(When you feel up in the clouds)
You ought to know
That I'm here no matter where you want to go
(In your head hanging upside-down)
Well, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

I'm here, no matter where you are
So let it in with, open arms, no matter where you are
Sometimes, you'll have to wait,
And it passes by like a satellite or star
No matter where you are

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You know when
Ooh-hoooo-hooooo
(When you feel up in the clouds)
Oh, yeah, you know when
Ooh-hoooo-Ooh hooooo

(When your best friend's all strung out)
Oh, yeah, you know when
You ought to know
That I'm here no matter where you want to go
(In your head, hanging upside-down)
Yeah, you know when
That's how you know
When your best friend's all strung out


"Best Friend" Explained by Foster The People



According to an interview with MTV the band explains that the music video is actually a  commentary on the modeling industry. Yay! We were right


"The clip plays out like a miniature horror film — but this time, it’s a cast full of models, and the monsters and demons are themselves. Frontman Ben Foster said it’s all meant to reflect the pressure women feel to obtain that “perfect” body — an insecurity addressed not only on “Best Friend,” but Supermodel as a whole, too. It’s a commentary on the modeling industry and the fashion industry and the pressures women feel and girls feel every day,” he said. “It’s a playful take on that; it’s not too heavy handed.” (MTV)


Check out the lyric video, its just as rad!

FUN FACT!

"The band was originally named Foster and the People, but after people misheard it as Foster the People, the name kind of stuck because it meant the band was taking care of the people."
