One of our fave collabs of 2018 was Foster the People ‘s thrilling single with The Kooks “Ride or Die” – for which we had them interview each other about the creative process. But last November we were equally thrilled to premiere the FTP video for “Worst Nites,” taken from their hit 2017 album Sacred Hearts Club
Of all the binge-worthy shows coming out on Netflix these days, Russian Doll has risen quickly to the top of everyone’s list.
