Foster The People

Formed in Los Angeles in 2009 by multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Mark Foster, indie rock trio Foster the People make melodic and atmospheric, dance-oriented pop. Foster initially began the project alone, but before long he added long-term friend Cubbie Fink on bass and drummer Mark Pontius to complete the lineup. The following year, their 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. This inevitably garnered the attention of major labels, and eventually the band signed to Columbia imprint Startime International. Early in 2011 they released a self-titled EP that featured "Pumped Up Kicks," and with the major-label support, the song became a worldwide hit.

Despite the rapid climb of the single, the bandmembers were afforded time to concentrate on writing their debut full-length, while "Pumped Up Kicks" grew in popularity and was featured on television shows including the likes of Gossip Girl, Homeland, and a host of commercials. Later that summer the band released its debut record, Torches, which was produced mainly by Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, Ellie Goulding), with Paul Epworth (Adele, Friendly Fires) also contributing to a handful of tracks. They then embarked on tours across North America and Europe to support its release. In 2012 they took home the Billboard Music Awards' Top Rock Song accolade, and were nominated for a host of others honors, including Grammy, BRIT, NME, and Teen Choice awards.

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. In 2014, Foster the People returned with their sophomore album, the Paul Epworth-produced Supermodel. ~ Scott Kerr, Rovi

It's a sad song

The song's title refers to shoes that the narrator's peers wear as a status symbol.<10>< 1 1 >

This what was pulled from Wikipedia. Just tired of people saying it is about a school shooting. It still gives a somewhat chilling depiction of the mind set of someone willing to do such violence though.

It was terrifying how mental illness among youth had skyrocketed in the last decade. I was scared to see where the pattern was headed if we didn't start changing the way we were bringing up the next generation.< 7 > In writing the song, Foster wanted to get inside the head of an isolated, psychotic kid<4> and bring awareness to the issue of gun violence amongst youth, which he feels is an epidemic perpetuated by lack of family, lack of love, and isolation.
hoolville
The lyrics to Pumped Up Kicks are written from the perspective of a troubled and delusional youth with homicidal thoughts.<4> The lines in the chorus warn potential victims to outrun my gun and that they better run, better run, faster than my bullet. Foster said in a statement to CNN.com, I wrote 'Pumped Up Kicks' when I began to read about the growing trend in teenage mental illness. I wanted to understand the psychology behind it because it was foreign to me.
I hope you all know that this song is about a school shooting don't get me wrong it's a good song it is just scaring thinking about it
❤️Pumped up kicks ❤️
I❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤ p u m p e d up kicks

Have liked FTP from the beginning. Fun. Peppy :)
Whenever we see someone do a chain comment, we should post after it that it doesn't work and to stop. Together we can stop it.

Foster the people in the house
I will always be a Foster Kid
Ever since "Pumped Up Kicks",I've listen to all their songs,and I'm so happy Supermodel is out!
Their music is so interesting, showcasing something different from music today. All their songs from Torches and Supermodel are all amazing. FTP will always be my favorite band.
Ok ik I JUST commented, but Helena Beat is amazing, and even though Mark Foster wrote it about his heroin addiction, I just GET some of the lyrics. Like, you know those days when you wanna just choose, to not get out of bed, you're lost in your head again? Yeah. That for SURE. And the chorus. Ok. I'm done. Peace out.

I LOVE FOSTER THE PEOPLE! Oh, and I heard some fans call themselves Foster Kids, which some people think is dark, but let's be honest a lot of their songs are "dark" behind a catchy beat. Ya feel me? If you're a Foster Kid/Firebrea t h e r follow me! Fire breathers are Imagine Dragins fans, btw, I like the more obscure fan names obviously. Lol
