F.O.A.K. ft. KT Forester - Love Me MP3 [Foundation Rekords]The new single Love Me is an appealing track with a contemporary sound. However, its definitely NOT a love song, and even though the music and melody might be inclusive, the lyrics do not reflect the usual phoniness of this genre. F.O.A.K. are loud, cocky and they speak their minds on any issue ("Let's talk infidelities and Ashley Cole bedding all your secretaries, come on son, is it necessary?").

But while 'Love Me' is unrelenting and provocative ("I was sat having a gander in my house, is it me or has that Dappy lad been waxing his eyebrows?"), the boys from Manchester open up in the chorus admitting that all they want is for you to love them. F.O.A.K. come across as distinctively Northern and cite the Gallagher brothers and Ian Brown as their main inspirations.

However, they still strive to maintain the raw edge of Hip-Hop and stay sharp and lyrically on point with witty, satirical and often complex rhyme schemes that compliment the hard-hitting instrumentals they gracefully flow over.

Their forthcoming debut album, P.R.A.I.S.E M.E. is close to completion and is due for release in the autumn. 'P.R.A.I.S.E M.E.' contains features from KT Forrester, Misha Bryan, Rewd Adams, Stig of the Dump and California based rapper One-2.

Released: 27th June 2011
