Considered Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, THE FOREIGN RESORT is now gearing up for a video crowdsourcing campaign for their new single ‘She is Lost’, as well as a mini-tour in Denmark/Germany with NYC dreampop faves DEAD LEAF ECHO. They’re well prepared for this blast, having toured with The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers and Swervedriver, and sharing bills with DIIV, The Soft Moon, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories and Cold Cave.
First, the band will tour several cities in north-west Europe with NYC’s Dead Leaf Echo (tour dates below). Second, they are crowdsourcing the new video for ‘She is Lost’, asking fans to make their own contribution to The Foreign Resort experience by creating a video that the band shall adopt as its official video, to be shared internationally.
This is the first song from the band’s next full length album, seeing the trio return to the analogue sound of their ‘New Frontiers’ album, only with a sound that is more minimalistic and with plenty of electronics and spacious drums to create a dreamy yet upbeat soundscape full of contrast.
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.
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” ranked among the year’s top albums at radio stations like WZBC Boston and KDHX St. Louis as well as numerous European and American blogs.
