The Invisible – ‘Protection’ (Accidental Recordings)

The Invisible – ‘Protection’ (Accidental Recordings)

Since the Mercury nomination of their debut self titled release back in 2009, the post-rock, jazz and world music that informed their sound so effectively has been pillaged and debased by bands with a fraction of the imagination of these guys. The main protagonists, Foals have gone on to receive worldwide praise for a sound they stole note for note from The Invisible but now they’re back to take what is rightfully theirs, they achieve this in this one track alone.
‘Protection’ is no massive departure, rather an huge step forward away from their past and leaving other bands way behind, it’s eight minutes of musical heaven transporting you to places you’ve never been to before, the dramatic synths particularly towards the end have Eno’s influenced all over them, the tribal drums are the drums from hell and the jagged disfunctioning guitars are like knife stabs to the ears. This is an incredible piece of music that must be heard. 9.5/10
