XL by NGOD (2011)

Kind of Like: Rubik, rooftops, Six Gallery, Kite Party, Foals
Genres: Math Rock, Emo, Indie
Preview: Bandcamp

"‘Whereas most two-guitar four-piece bands seem to have a built-in attitude of riff-first, ask questions later, NGOD appear to approach each of their beautifying three-minute packets from all angles via all instruments. This comes across in their music, each track presenting a synthesis which in the hands of lesser musicians would come across poorly.’

NGOD are a four piece experimental rock/pop band from Bradford. Consisting of Samuel Augustine (Vocals & Guitar), Luke Fielding (Guitar), Lewis Dutton-Taylor (Bass) and Alex Dutton-Taylor (Drums)"

When I heard Six Gallery wasn't going to be making anymore music after Breakthoughs in Modern Art, I was pretty bummed because they were like if rooftops had a vocalist, and a great one at that.  Fortunately, this band is around because they do that as well and also have great direction in their music.  They are also from the UK; which gives them a Foals feel at time.
