This summer, the buzz has been seriously on Foster The People and their debut album Torches. In fact, their breakout single, “Pumped Up Kicks” sits at #16 on iTunes at the time of writing.

The band who is currently down under gearing up for the Splendour in the Grass music festival in Australia, happening this weekend, have had some time to do a few side gigs in between. One gig in particular happened at the Gaelic Theatre, in Sydney, where the band performed a cover of the classic Neil Young song, “Heart of Gold” (which they also covered at Waterloo Records in Austin, Texas earlier this month).

Just listening to the crowd yell and sing-along let’s you know how much of an awesome job FTP did with this cover. It is indeed quite impressive. Torches is a fun and catchy electro-pop album that certainly should brighten your summer if you’re into that. Don’t expect any substance though.
