Fifa 14 soundtrack announced: Featuring Miles Kane, Bloc Party and Vampire Weekend

The has been announced, and features the regular mix of internationally renowned bands, and people we’ve never heard of.

We can all remember the classic Fifa songs that played in the background while we wasted away the hours of our free-time trying to take our team to the .

But does the soundtrack look like it will be up to par? A quick browse through YouTube suggests it will be, here’s our top picks for the songs you’ve never previously heard of but that you’ll know all the words to by Christmas.

Best song by an American band you’ve never heard of:

Smallpools – Dreaming

on . 

This song has ‘Fifa’ written all over it, it’s the type of song that will play in the background while you’re reading your email inbox in Manager Mode.

 

Best song by a British artist you’ve never heard of:

Amplify Dot – Get Down

 

This was the first song announced for the soundtrack, and ever since that momentous day in May, we knew it was a keeper. It’s loud, it’s brash, it’s the song that plays in the background while you tell your opponent how many goals you’re going to score past their shoddy back-four.

 

Best random Scandinavian song that eventually becomes ingrained in your inner psyche:

The Royal Concept – On Our Way

 

The song that comes on after you lose an important match, conceding two goals in the dying minutes. This song gives you a small amount of bittersweet comfort, before you decide to put your keeper in the reserves until he stops letting in goals at the near post.

 

Best (only) band from New Zealand:

The Naked and Famous – Hearts Like Ours

on . 

This is definitely the song that plays when you leave the game on the start menu and go to make a cup of tea. Fifa and EA Sport have 100% nailed ‘dreary/relaxing start menu music’.

 

Best song in a foreign language that you’ll know all the lyrics/phonetics to by Christmas:

Illya Kuryaki & The Vaderramas – Funky Futurista

on . 

Every Fifa needs something funky, something with a little bit of that samba vibe to allow us to get the passes flowing. This is the funky song for Fifa 14.
