"Foster the People tested the waters earlier this year when alternative rock radio stations picked up “Pumped Up Kicks” en masse. The next single, Helena Beat, joins the hit parade. It’s a blessed confluence of sounds — pop tempos, sparkly synth-based alt rock, a trance-y break, handclaps, and a serious Beach Boys jones — fronted by Mark Foster’s high-pitched vocals. Think OMD produced by Ric Ocasek, or MGMT and Miike Snow goofing around in the garage. Whatever the equation, just know there isn't a high-enough volume level for this one. “Helena Beat” appears on the band’s debut album, Torches." -- iTunes Store
