Olympic Airways

When one's in the great outdoors, nothing passes the time more than destroying things. Don't worry, the Oxford, U.K.-based indie rockers in Foals aren't burning trees or killing birds. Rather, joined by a crew of floppy-headed young lads, the band goes bezerk in the wooded enclave and smashes some TVs and furniture, not to mention the odd plastic crate and tire swing. Perhaps it's a statement of what man might become if left to his own devices in the wilderness. Perhaps we should ask David Ma, who directed the video.

Meanwhile, the digital single for "Olympic Airwaves" will be out as a 7" and on CD October 6, as well as in digital format as an iTunes exclusive. The latter contains two extra tracks, remixes of the original by Supermayer and Diskjokke.
