Since the creation of the band, The Foreign Resort pushed forward the exploration of their musical style and progressively added several influences along the way. That is what give them today their distinct style, light, melancholic and complexe at the same time
The Post Punk and Wave vibes stand out presented with the magic of the remarkable guitar and bass lines, the sophisticated drums and the quite addictive vocals. As the band is active for more than a decade now and has played way more than 500 shows you’ll experience what’s so inspiring about them once you see them live.
A mix of dark new-wave & explosive post-punk
Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, The Foreign Resort 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 the motorik bass and powerful drumming, all while the taut and sincere vocals 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, Killing Joke, The Soft Moon, She Past Away and many more. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 500 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal, Nocturnal Culture Night, Wave Gotik Treffen and W-Fest.
The duo released their latest full length album “Outnumbered” in 2019, followed by "The Rabbit Hole" EP in 2020 - both on Artoffact Records.
