Great band from Los Angeles formed in 2009 who make music which is mostly in the Indie Rock and Indie Pop genre. Made songs such as Pumped Up Kicks, which was popular during the summer of 2011, and Helena Beat. The entire album 'Torches' is very good, receiving great reviews from critics overall.
The band is made up of Mark Foster, who does vocals, Mark Pontius, who does the drums and Cubbie Fink who does the bass guitar. Isom Innis and Sean Cimino - also known as "Mago" which means "wizard" in Italian, as he is a "wizard" guitarist - also do live shows with Foster The People, making them part of the band as well.
