LISTEN: Thee Oh Sees Give Us What We’ve Been Waiting For With “Minotaur”

 

We still can't get the album artwork for Thee Oh Sees' upcoming record, Floating Coffin, out of our head. The strawberries, the beady eyes, the sharp teeth and the little tongues all together make for a simultaneously terrifying and awesome image. (Seeing is believing so here's a refresher.) We've been patiently waiting for a couple of weeks now, and finally, Thee Oh Sees have released "Minotaur," the closing track off Floating Coffin.

Q&A: Wearing Wifebeaters, Growing Roses And Wu-Tang-Inspired Spirituality, As Told By Foals

 

It’s an exciting time to be a Foals fan and not just for those who went to the music video shoot for “My Number,” in London last month. 


Foals toured Australia at the beginning of the year (in late February they will embark on a sold-out UK leg) as well as perform all over Europe. Come April, the Oxford quintet heads to the states, giving as many fans as possible a live taste of third LP, Holy Fire, out February 11 (UK) and February 12 (US).
