Foster the People with St. Lucia
“Formed in Los Angeles in 2009 by multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Mark Foster, indie rock trio Foster the People made atmospheric, psychedelic, and dance-oriented pop. Foster initially began the project alone, before he added long-term friend Cubbie Fink on bass and drummer Mark Pontius to complete the lineup. The following year, single “Pumped Up Kicks” was posted on their website, picking up considerable buzz online and significant airplay on KROQ, alongside packed performances at Texas music showcase SXSW.
Foster the People began writing material for their sophomore record while on tour, and they laid tracks down on a portable setup before they entered the studio with Paul Epworth to put the finishing touches to the songs in 2013. They posted a teaser trailer on their website on New Year’s Day 2014, and the next day announced that their second album, Supermodel, would be released later that year,” (www.itunes.apple.com)
