Music Monday: Foster the People

Foster the People is a pretty big alternative, indie pop band, known mostly for their big hit Pumped Up Kicks , which reached number one on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart and received TWO Grammy Award nominations. The band has been around since 2009. They're from Los Angeles, California, and currently have three members who are not only musically inclined, but also pretty cute.  Mark Foster is the front man and lead singer, Mark Pontius is the drummer, and Cubbie Fink is the bass player and backup singer.

Foster the People has been nominated for many awards, including the Best New Artist for the MTV Video Music awards back in 2011. They were also nominated as the Choice Rock Group in the Teen Choice Awards. They won awards for New Artist of the Year in the SharkOne Awards, and they also won the Top Rock Song for their song Pumped Up Kicks for the Billboard Music Awards back in 2012.

Though Foster the People is known for their hit Pumped Up Kicks, they have A LOT of other good music as well, including one of my favorite songs, Helena Beat. Check it out below!
