The song was inspired by a real life and very poignant encounter Isaac had with a genocide survivor in Ruanda. The music video was shot on the California coast north of Malibu the night of October 14, 2011 and directed by Justin Francis.  In the directors words:”On the surface it’s a beach party performance video, but it’s really about people coming together and sharing a common experience, and enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime evening together” – Justin Francis

Foster The People “Call It What You Want”
“Call It What You Want” is the 3rd single from indie pop band Foster The People’s ‘Torches’ album. The music video was directed by Ace Norton (who also directed the video for “Helena Beat”) where the band goes through a series of odd behaviors from the comforts of a lavish estate.
