Formed in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2006, The Foreign Resort is anything but conventional. Described as ôThe Cure embedded in noise with Tears For Fears-ish melodies and the energy burst of Joy Division,ö by Gaffa Magazine (Denmark), this description is as accurate as it is flattering. Crystal-solid performances are always a guarantee at one of The Foreign ResortÆs shows, and this EP is a glowing representation of that. The marriage of New Wave, Shoegaze and Post Rock has been achieved with sheer perfection on this five song EP.
The Foreign Resort will be returning to the States in October, playing a number of dates on the East Coast that will culminate with a showcase at this yearÆs CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival. These Danes have already visited this side of the pond a number of times, and have played some of the best venues in the States including: Pianos (NY), Spaceland (LA), Hemlock Tavern (SF) and too many others to mention.
In Europe, The Foreign Resort have supported the likes of Swervedriver and A Place to Bury Strangers, just to mention a couple. Austin, TX had the honor of seeing (and hearing) The Foreign Resort as they played 5 different events during the annual South By Southwest festival.
Expect big things from our friends from Denmark, because this is just the beginning!
