Cool Cover Alert: Foster The People - 'Under Control'

Posted Friday, February 14th 2014 @ 12pm

While awaiting the release of their sophomore album ‘Supermodel’ due out on March 14, Foster the People are filling their time by tackling the challenge of covering a chart-topping EDM hit. Specifically they covered Calvin Harris and Alesso's single 'Under Control' during an in-studio session for BBC Radio 1.

Foster the People naturally stripped the original high-energy, electronic song to fit their pop-rock-indie style. They play with a notably slower pace sans the heavy, escalating beats that are customary to Calvin Harris’ tunes, but the cover is still a unique pop-rock anthem that only Mark Foster & his band can deliver.
