The Foreign Resort returns at last: they have a new single via Artoffact Records called “Overturn,” the first since their acclaimed Outnumbered album in 2019. Overturn debuts a few new members: Alioscha on drums and Steffan on bass. The new punk/rock drumming sound evolved into something tighter and lighter than their previous offerings. Although melancholy in nature, its high energy opens the doors to a glimpse of hope for the next chapter of life.
“The lyrics of the song deal with the impact of Covid and politics on friendships and how people suddenly feel estranged to each other,” says the band. “Differences people were able to cope with before suddenly become too much, and longtime friends go separate ways.”
The video was directed by longtime collaborator Arian Soheili, creating a gloomy atmosphere in black & white. It tells a compelling story of isolation, solitude and barriers to connection. Shadow phantoms of a cruel temptress, snakes, light play, and faded memories intersperse between shots of the band. The nightmare noir feel illustrates the video beautifully.
“Overturn will be part of our live set when embarking on our first North American tour in over three years,” says the band.
