April 24, 2019 Kae Luna
Fools and Foes just dropped their latest single called ‘Sheriff’, and it’s letting us hear the angst of being used and played in a relationship.
The official music video for ‘Sheriff’ by Fools and Foes is now available on Facebook and if you haven’t watched it yet, now is a great time to do so! The song is so painful yet full of angst. Watch the music video right here!
Fools and Foes
Hailing from Manila, Philippines, Fools and Foes is a four-piece math-driven rock band who has been active for quite a while now.
The band was formed in 2014 and has been gracing us with great indie rock music since then. Under ‘A Spur of the Moment Project’, the band has released their first album called ‘Underneath the Roots’ a long four years ago. And they are about to release their self-titled album again in a couple of months. Who’s excited?! I know we are because when something waits four years to make, it’s usually worth the wait! We also know that the band plays good music that speaks to the audience on different depth, so we can’t wait to hear more from them!
Vocalist and bassist Isa Romualdez shared through an exclusive interview that, “This album sings about the external struggles, conflicts with people, lost relationships, homesickness, coping mechanisms, dependence, and however you would want it to mean to you. Our ultimate goal with this album is for our listeners to relate it to their own experiences, interpret it in such a way that can speak to them deeply and personally,” which, if we’re gonna be frank, is exactly what we’re seeing in the song ‘Sheriff’. The songwriting is raw and intimate like the writer is letting us into his own story with no holds barred.
Fools and Foes as a band has different influences. Their singles “+63,” and “Sheriff” are examples of songwriting that eases the transition from their folk-rock roots. Fret not! You can also listen to their other tracks here!
The music video features a girl seemingly being confused. She looked like she’s having a hard time deciding on something. If you look at the surface, that’s all there is to the video. But if you’re someone who has experienced being played in a relationship while your partner thinks of another person, you’d understand. This is exactly what it’s like. It’s not always crying and drama. Nor is it blockbuster lines that you throw at each other like you’re in a TV show. Sometimes it’s a battle with your own self that you have to deal with alone. There is something confusing about knowing you’re being lied to but still loving the person so much so as not to leave.
‘Sheriff’ is actually the song to play for when you want to let your anger and sadness out. What did you think about it? Let us know on the comments down below! Or hit us up on our Facebook or Twitter @UDoUPh.
