The Foreign Resort (DK)


(official homepage) 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.

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.

Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in booking over 200 shows – most of them in the US as well as showcases at Spot Festival, SXSW, Iceland Airwaves and CMJ Music Marathon. This enabled them to develop a wider fan base, as well as becoming part of the burgeoning noise pop scene – evident through rotation, interviews, and live performances at radio stations throughout the US as well as in Europe.

Other international bands have also welcomed them on their tours such as The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers and Swervedriver.

Magazines like Consequence of Sound as well as Danish GAFFA and Soundvenue have praised The Foreign Resort. The Big Takeover wrote “This band is epic!” about their 2011 EP and UK’s Louder Than War stated about their latest release Scattered & Buried: “It’s an amazing album, which puts The Foreign Resort firmly on the radar, hailing them as the most exciting band to come out of Denmark since The Raveonettes”.

The Foreign Resort’s latest album “New Frontiers”, produced by John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, Cocteau Twins, PJ Harvey), was released February 24, 2014 on BLVD Records. The singles “Dead End Roads” and “Alone” are currently in rotation at several radio stations across the United States and Europe and were featured in Under The Radar Magazine, Seismic Sound and High Voltage Magazine.

(http://www.infrarot.de/the-foreign-resort/scattered-buried/9941129) The Foreign Resort wurden 2006 in Kopenhagen (Dänemark) gegründet und ihre Musik ist seither alles andere als konventionell. Beschrieben als The Cure eingebunden in Lärm, mit Tears For Fears-ähnlichen Melodien und der geballten Energie von Joy Division (Gaffa Magazine, Dänemark), ist diese Aussage mindestens genauso treffend, wie geschmeichelt.

Eine Fusion von New Wave, Shoegaze und Post Rock mit schierer Perfektion. Auf ihrem neuen Longplayer 'Scattered & Buried' perfektionieren The Foreign Resort erneut ihren Sound, der stilistisch zwischen Post-Punk und New Wave angesiedelt ist. Die 10 Tracks der EP, die auch als Vinyl-Edition erscheint, setzen sich aus neuen Songs und neuen Versionen älterer Titel sowie einigen Remixen zusammen.

Die Underground-Band aus Dänemark hat seit ihrer Gründung über 130 Konzerte gespielt, ist dabei erfolgreich in den USA aufgetreten und hat sich in der internationalen Indie-Rock-Szene einen guten Namen erarbeitet. 'Scattered & Buried' ist nun die 4. Veröffentlichung, die im September 2012 zuerst in Dänemark und in USA über Monolathe Recordings released wurde.
