Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks (Video)

So the other week we got an email through from the Foster The People mailing list, the email was about their new tour, with details below… But that’s not the reason for this post, the reason for this is their great new video for ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ (above), a song we chose for our Songs Of 2010. It was chosen because it sums up a genre that came to prominence in the summer, and is a nice pop slanted example of it, regardless of the stigma attached to the ‘hazepop’ genre.

I’m a sucker for cool videography, and this is certainly a well produced video, made all the more special because it is just a compilation of the bands footage from the last 6 months, I have no idea whether this was shot on a VDSLR or not, but I am definitely loving the current depth of field and colour palette trend.

Anyway, hope you can enjoy the video, here’s a download link for the song, and a list of their tour dates.
