Indie rock trio Foster the People make atmospheric, psychedelic, dance-oriented pop music. Formed in Los Angeles in 2009, the band's single "Pumped Up Kicks" first received significant airplay on KROQ in 2010, and online attention soon followed. Early in 2011, they released a self-titled EP that featured the song, and after a slow climb, it peaked inside the Top Ten later that year. Also in 2011, Foster the People issued their full-length debut album, Torches, which hit number eight on the U.S. charts. Three years later, the band returned with their sophomore full-length, the Paul Epworth-produced Supermodel, which followed their debut into the Top Ten.
