Foster the People is an electro-influenced indie rock band from Los Angeles. Formed in 2009, the band quickly gained momentum with a strong showing at the music festival South by Southwest and the catchy single, "Pumped Up Kicks," which illustrates its proclivity for synth bass hooks, infectious choruses and electropop vibes reminiscent of contemporaries such as MGMT. Thanks to that early buzz, Foster the People was signed to a major label contract and released its debut album in 2011.
