The Foreing Resort on new wave-post punk bändi Tanskasta.
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
will continue playing shows at venues and festivals throughout 2018
while preparing their next full length release in 2019, preceded by the
single “She is Lost“.
