Formed by Mark Foster, Jacob “Cubbie” Fink and Mark Pontius in Los Angeles, 2009, after several years of frustration by Mark Foster working as a jingle writer. After writing and recording the song “Pumped Up Kicks,” and releasing it online, the band went viral, being offered a record deal by Startime International and going on to develop a strong and devoted following by playing small club shows and music festivals. After their debut album, “Torches,” was released in 2011, “Pumped Up Kicks,” became even bigger, reaching number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and leading to two Grammy Award wins for Foster The People, one for the album, and one for the single.
The band are currently on tour with their latest album, “Supermodel.” A concept album, “Supermodel,” deals with “the ugly side of capitalism,” focusing on issues within consumerism and popular culture, featuring light-hearted instrumental sections in contrast with darker lyrics, and overall a far more serious sound than their debut. The difference is both startling, provocative, and evidence of the bands growth as individuals and musicians. Uncut statedl "the sound they've fashioned is glossy and supersaturated while still exhibiting the subversive impulse that yielded the supremely catchy but subtly sinister smash 'Pumped Up Kicks’”.
