The red light turning green

This #inktober entry also doubles as my love letter to Foals, a band I’ve been in love with since 2007.

Dear Yannis, Jack, Jimmy, Walter, and Edwin,

Your new record, What Went Down, killed me (as with all your previous releases). My waking hours have been spent listening to it, and my heart breaks when you sing, “Give me the red light turning green. Give me the way it could’ve been.” And it’s a good kind of pain.

I swear, by the old gods and the new, that I will never miss your tour again. So please kindly include my humble continent when you promote your new record. And I will be there by the barricade, singing my (broken) heart out and jumping around and swaying my arms in worship. I will give it my all.

Much love from Manila,
