The Foreign Resort (DK)

Info

(official homepage)

The Foreign Resort – a mix of dark new wave and explosive post-punk.
Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, 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 Borbjerg Jakobsen’s taut and sincere vocal delivery demands your attention.

The Foreign Resort have toured relentlessly, addicted to the allure of America’s lost highways, sharing bills with bands like Cold Cave, DIIV, The Soft Moon, She Past Away, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories, Ash Code and many more. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 420 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal and Nocturnal Culture Night.

The trio is currently preparing its next full length release on Artoffact Records in 2019, preceded by the single “She is Lost“ and followed up by shows and festival appearances in Europe and North America throughout 2019.

Das dänische Trio spielt melodischen und atmosphärisch dichten Post Punk/ New Wave. Freche Reverb-Gitarren erinnern gekonnt an Größen wie The Chameleons, The Cure, Jesus & Mary Chain, aber auch Joy Division oder gar My Bloody Valentine. Aber die Drei verlieren sich nicht in Soundzitaten, klingen gleichzeitig aktuell und druckvoll.
Seit 2010 hat die Band mehr als 400 Shows in Nordamerika und Europa gespielt mit Auftritten auf verschiedenen Bühnen inkl. Deutsche Festivals wie Wave-Gotik-Treffen, Melting Sounds Festival, Gotham Sounds Festival und jetzt auch Owls ‘n’ Bats Festival 2018 sowie NCN – Nocturnal Culture Night 2018.
