FOR SHARING

“The most exciting band to come out of Denmark since The Raveonettes” Louder Than War

"Soundscapes with slightly shimmering shoegaze guitars accompanied by occasional edgy synth cascades and airy reverb infused vocals" – Post-Punk

"This Danish post punk band is a must see, must hear, must be devoted of... it just takes a few seconds for the audience to be under the spell of The Foreign Resort" The Spill Magazine 

“Some really good, loud stuff here that nu gaze fans of M83 and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart should enjoy“Consequence of Sound

“This band is epic! Remnants of Killing Joke and Joy Division lay in their wake as they pick up random sonic body parts left by bands ranging from The White Lies to U2” The Big Takeover 

"The most effective new wave this side of the oughts" - Sounds Better With Reverb

Denmark's The Foreign Resort is releasing their new single 'She is Lost' following several performances at the prestigious Canadian Music Week and 10-day Canadian tour. The post-punk trio also has two other exciting announcements.

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.

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 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'.”

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 now also 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” 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.
