Info:

Gegründet 2008 in San Francisco, haben SLOWNESS erstmals 2011 mit der EP “Hopeless But Otherwise” für Aufmerksamkeit gesorgt. Zwei Jahre später veröffentlichte die Band um Geoffrey Scott und Julie Lynn ihren ersten Longplayer “For Those Who Wish To See The Glass Half Full”, der von Monte Vallier (Weekend, The Soft Moon) produziert und von Kramer (Low, Galaxie 500) gemastert wurde. Kurz vor dem Release ihres zweiten Albums “How To Keep From Falling Off A Mountain” erscheint nun auch das bisher nur via Import erhältliche Debut erstmals offiziell in Europa. Die atmosphärisch-geschmeidige, oft von einem Hauch Melancholie durchströmte Melange aus Shoegaze, Indie und Wave titulieren SLOWNESS selbst als “Drone Pop“, den sie in einem stilistischen Bezug zu Bands wie REM (in ihrer I.R.S. Ära) und den frühen Stereolab sowie dem Schaffen von The Cure am Ende der 1980er Jahre sehen.

THE FOREIGN RESORT – NEW FRONTIERS [German Release]

TFR_newfrontiers_smallNew Release – August 2014

THE FOREIGN RESORT – NEW FRONTIERS (CD|Digital Album)
Label: Reptile Music / Ignition
Distribution: Altone
Release Date: 29.08.14
File Under: Shoegaze | Post Punk | New Wave

 

 

 

Info:

Sonically expressive, dark and moody, catchy and up-beat are words to describe this Danish group that mixes 80s new-wave with explosive post-punk and shoegaze.

Hailing from Copenhagen, The Foreign Resort has intricately balanced an international sound with songs that instill contradictory feelings of melancholy and bliss. The band takes the audience on a journey through passages of textured layers with haunting and dreamy vocals, to echoes and pulsations of overdriven guitars, powerful drumming, driving bass, and intense thematic melodic lines. The end result is an aural rollercoaster of emotional intensity.

Magazines have praised The Foreign Resort – The Big Takeover wrote “This band is epic!” about their latest release. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in booking over 200 shows (including showcases at Spot Festival, SXSW, Iceland Airwaves and CMJ Music Marathon). Other international bands have also welcomed them on their tours such as The Raveonettes, A Place To Bury Strangers and Swervedriver.

The Foreign Resort’s new album “New Frontiers” is produced by John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins, Lush). The singles “Dead End Roads” and “Alone” are currently in rotation at several radio stations, the next single “Flushed” will be released in fall.

Accompanied by the release of its first music video, »Rooms Made of Dust«, directed by german video artist Henning Frederik Malz, the trio drops its 4-track debut EP »Our Fears« in July 2014. BOX AND THE TWINS are currently working on their debut album »Everywhere I Go Is Silence«.
