THE FOREIGN RESORT – SHE IS LOST

Promotion News / New Release – April 2017

THE FOREIGN RESORT – SHE IS LOST
[New Single]

 

Danish post-punk trio THE FOREIGN RESORT release their new single ‚She is Lost‘ on April 19. This is the first song from the band’s next full length album, marking a return to the analogue sound of their ‚New Frontiers‘ album, only this time the sound is more minimalistic and with plenty of electronics and spacious drums to create a dreamy yet upbeat soundscape full of contrast.

For lead singer Mikkel B. Jakobsen ‚She is Lost‘ is a very personal song about what he sarcastically refers to as “the summer of love”: “It was one of the worst summers in my life. I came out strong on the other side, but this song was written partly when things were looking very bad. I was not doing the right things to get to a better place and partly when I had realized it was not just me who was the problem. Hence the title ‚She is Lost‘.”

THE FOREIGN RESORT are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, led by singer and songwriter Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen. The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Intricate reverb-enveloped guitar lines glide over Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming, all while Mikkel’s taut and sincere vocal delivery demands your attention.

Having toured with The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers and Swervedriver, THE FOREIGN RESORT has also shared bills with bands like DIIV, The Soft Moon, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories and, most recently, Cold Cave. They’ve also toured the USA relentlessly, addicted to the allure of America’s lost highways. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 400 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen in Germany and Canadian Music Week 2017.

The band’s latest release ‚The American Dream‘ was dubbed “post punk par excellence” by Deep Ground, with Slug Magazine saying this is “an EP that possesses a singular fault: It is not long enough”. THE FOREIGN RESORT’s 2014 album “New Frontiers” (produced by John Fryer) ranked among the year’s top albums at numerous European and American blogs. With several music videos to their credit, there is no video for the new single ‚She is Lost‘ yet, motivating the band to crowdsource their new video.

Mit der Veröffentlichung ihres dritten Albums „New Frontiers” im Sommer 2014 haben THE FOREIGN RESORT einen echten Wirkungstreffer erzielt. Der Longplayer erhielt nicht nur überschwängliche Kritiken von Seiten der einschlägigen Musikpresse, sondern landete schließlich auch in diversen „Best Of“-Jahrespolls/-charts. 2015 nutzten die Dänen für ausgiebige Touren durch Europa und Nordamerika, arbeiteten parallel dazu jedoch auch an weiteren Songs. Das Ergebnis ist auf der aktuellen EP „The American Dream“ zu bestaunen, die mit fünf frischen Tracks aufwartet.

THE FOREIGN RESORT & DER REST – Live in Cologne

Attaque_feb_eventEvent News – February 2015

THE FOREIGN RESORT & DER REST Live
06.02.15, Tsunami Club Köln

 

Eigentlich hätten THE FOREIGN RESORT vergangenen Mai im Tsunami Club spielen sollen – eine Vollsperrung auf der Autobahn verhinderte leider den Auftritt. Nun kommen die Dänen aus Kopenhagen zum Nachholtermin nach Köln, um ihr aktuelles Album „New Frontiers“ live zu präsentieren. Entstanden ist der Longplayer in Kooperation mit Produzentenlegende John Fryer, der neben zahlreichen Arbeiten für u.a. Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins, Lush und Clan Of Xymox auch für Nine Inch Nail’s Debütalbum „Pretty Hate Machine“ verantwortlich zeichnet. Mühelos schlägt das Trio dabei einen musikalischen Bogen von eingängigen Indie-Nummern („Alone“) hin zu dunklen New Wave-Krachern („Flushed“). Auf ihren zahlreichen Tourneen in den USA und Europa haben die Skandinavier schon Konzerte mit Bands wie The Raveonettes und A Place To Bury Strangers gespielt, nun kehren sie endlich wieder auf die deutschen Bühnen zurück.

DER REST ist das Projekt von Philipp Taraz, der sich mit seinen drei bisherigen Alben im stilistischen Bereich zwischen Post Punk, Avantgarde Rock und Depro Punk bewegt. Auch die gemeinsamen Touren mit Fliehende Stürme, Die Art, Gallon Drunk und Lydia Lunch verdeutlichen das musikalische Umfeld, dem sich die Hamburger Band verbunden fühlt. Beim Auftritt im Tsunami wird das Trio auch Songs vom neuen Album „10 Lieder für Freunde“ vorstellen.

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.

2nd COLOGNE SHOEGAZE NIGHT
Live: The Foreign Resort, The History Of Colour TV & Shoreline Is

05.06.13, Tsunami Club Köln

 

 

 

Nach dem erfolgreichen Einstand der COLOGNE SHOEGAZE NIGHT im letzten Jahr, präsentiert das Team der Veranstaltungsreihe nun ein Mini-Festival im Tsunami Club. Drei Bands werden an dem Abend für ein atmosphärisch dichtes Klangspektrum zwischen verhallten Feedback-Sounds und aufbrausenden Gitarrenwänden sorgen.

THE FOREIGN RESORT aus Dänemark haben mit ihren bisherigen Releases sowie dem aktuellen Album „Scattered & Buried“ bereits nachhaltigen Eindruck in der Indie/Shoegaze-Szene hinterlassen und stoßen mit ihren dunklen Klangpassagen auch immer wieder das Tor zum 80er-Wave auf. Soeben wurden die Aufnahmen zum nächsten Longplayer abgeschlossen, der von niemand geringerem als John Fryer (bekannt für seine Arbeiten mit Cocteau Twins, Lush, Depeche Mode u.v.m.) produziert wird.
www.theforeignresort.com

Auf der Tour begleitet werden sie vom inzwischen in Berlin ansässigen Trio THE HISTORY OF COLOUR TV, das nach diversen Single-Releases mit seinem effektgeladenen Debütalbum „Emerald Cures Chic Ills“ anreist.

Komplettiert wird das Line Up des Abends von der deutschen Band SHORELINE IS, die mit dem letztjährigen Album „Deal Kindly“ eine der bemerkenswertesten und schönsten Newcomer-Platten aus einheimischer Produktion vorgelegt hat.
