Foster The People’s “Coming Of Age”: Listen To The First Single From ‘Supermodel’

In the midst of all the post-Golden Globes dissection and the flurry of commentary on Shakira and Rihanna‘s duet “Can’t Remember To Forget You,” the lead single from pop-rockers Foster The People‘s new album has also managed to make its way online. “Coming Of Age” serves as the first hint at what the band’s upcoming sophomore LP Supermodel will be like — and if you were guessing it would fall into the dreamy, melodic pop category that the trio so deftly tackled with their excellent debut LP Torches, you wouldn’t be too off the mark.

“I try to live without regrets, I’m always looking forward and not looking back / but I tend to leave a trail of debt while I’m movin’ ahead,” Foster offers up in the song’s inoffensive lyrics. (At least this one shouldn’t get yanked from radio playlists anytime soon.) “Coming Of Age” is all crunchy and uplifting guitars, swirling synths and Mark Foster‘s Beach Boys-esque wooo-ooooh-oooohs at the end.

Give “Coming Of Age” a listen below.
