Taken from the debut album ‘Torches’ out now

The brilliant Foster The People are set to release ‘Helena Beat’ as the next single from their critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Torches’ on Monday 5th September. Produced by Greg Kurstin, ‘Helena Beat’ is the follow-up to the band’s single ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ and is another infectious indie-pop anthem.
