The Foreign Resort are part of the modern post-punk scene's A-list these days, and for good reason. The Copenhagen trio have been making impassioned dark, chilling, and gloriously gloomy music (ala Joy Division, The Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Killing Joke) since 2010. During that time they've released a flawless arsenal of critically acclaimed EPs and LPs. They've also impressed extraordinary artists, touring alongside Swervedriver, A Place To Bury Strangers, Cold Cave, DIIV, The KVB, The Raveonettes, and Slowdive just to name a few.
In short, The Foreign Resort are a phenomenal band. Their music takes you on an explosive and spellbinding sonic journey into darkwave, post-punk, electro, goth, and wall-of-sound shoegaze, with entrancing and mystical vocals courtesy of leader Mikkel Jakobsen.
The Foreign Resort are back today with more brilliance. They've released a captivating new single "She Is Lost," a personal song written by Jakobsen. He reveals:
"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 and 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'."
"She Is Lost" is the first taste from the Foreign Resort's forthcoming full length album, which is expected out later this year (date TBA). The single also coincides with the band's 10-date Canadian tour, which kicks off tomorrow and brings them oh-so-close to the Detroit area April 27th at Phog Lounge in Windsor (go dust off that passport).
Stream "She Is Lost" below and grab the digital single now from Bandcamp, iTunes, or Amazon.
