Watch Foster the People’s “Tiny Desk Concert” for NPR Music. The trio give an intimate acoustic performance of ”Houdini,” ”Helena Beat” and this summer’s hit jam “Pumped Up Kicks.”
At the end of “Helena Beat,” an audience member asks bassist Cubbie Fink about the handwritten quote on the horn of his Jazz Bass. Turns out it’s a quote from Plato.
“Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
