Is it any wonder that Foster the People’s namesake lead-singer, Mark Foster, was also a jingle writer? That provides a big clue as to how the group’s enormous crossover hit, “Pumped Up Kicks” was so precisely composed, and it doesn’t stop there. A good number of the songs on the group’s debut record, Torches, were licensed for commercial use as well. But Foster appears to have had a change of heart. Last month, the group released their follow-up album, Supermodel, which lyrically addresses the excesses of capitalism. Time will tell if fans waiting to hear the big single are ready for the band’s more conscientious side. St. Lucia opens.
