We all know Foster the People. More specifically, their hit song ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ that blasted on every radio station back in 2011. Since then, they have come forth with some new albums, but I’m going to examine their latest release, ‘Sacred Hearts Club’, that came out July 21, 2017.

Their two prior albums were definitely different. Their 2014 album ‘Supermodel’ was much more slowed down than their energetic debut album ‘Torches’. Still, both were classified as alternative. This new album, and especially the EP/single that led up to the full album’s release, was pushing the boundaries of alternative rock. It has a much more synth/electronic feel that could more accurately be described as trap music.

When the full album came out though, this trap feel was definitely less prevalent. It was still quite synthetic, even a bit electronic but less trappy for sure. This album still follows a trend I have been noticing in the alternative music world. A trend towards more synthesized music. I’m not saying this is good or bad necessarily, that’s just what I’m noticing.

The album overall wasn’t bad. I thought that the songs I heard were pretty good. They were pretty catchy, and I’ve heard a few of them on the radio already. My favorites so far would definitely be ‘Doing It for the Money’ and ‘Sit Next to Me’. When you get the chance, listen to it and decide what you think.
