Editors’ Notes Foster the People bandleader Mark Foster has a natural gift for breezy hooks and the group's second full-length, Supermodel, is loaded with stylish, instantly familiar melodies. The band adopts polyglot pop influences from around the globe—including on the blazing opener, “Are You What You Want to Be,” which begins with a line about hearing djembe on the Champs-Élysées. From there, the energy of Supermodel never wanes. Driven by a handclapping backbeat, “Ask Yourself” bounces along with acoustic guitar and spacy synths, while “Coming of Age” is driven by half-stack guitar distortion and sunny optimism.
