Danish Post-Punkers The Foreign Resort Return With New Single “Resound”

I got lost, always, again
Deep inside it was dark
But you changed my decay
Made my demons go away

Since their formation in Copenhagen back in 2009, The Foreign Resort has dedicated themselves for over a decade to refining a sound that explodes with the raw energy of post-punk and delves into sombre shades of melancholy. Their work stands out for its richness and excitement, embodying moods both light and dark, and imbued with emotional depth with an immediate impact.

Now, The Foreign Resort has dropped a brand new single Resound via Toronto’s Artoffact Records. This standalone track is a confluence of moods as mysterious as a fog-veiled street at the witching hour, yet it carries an infectious joy that’s hard to shake. The lyrics, bewitching and spirited, blend seamlessly with a mix of pop and post-punk that’s been sharpened to perfection, both in the instrumental execution and the vocal delivery. If you think you can stand still while it plays, you might want to check your pulse.

In a town where the neon bleeds into the night like a siren’s call, Resound tells the tale of foreign love and a beautiful home found in another’s arms. Lost in the shadows, where demons lurk and decay whispers, a beacon shines through, chasing away the dark. But the flames of passion burn too fiercely, revealing a disaster in their wake, a run from the inevitable, a heart set to explode with no chance for escape. Yet, in the tumble of thoughts and self-doubt, a melody emerges, strong and defiant, transforming scars into a song of beauty. It’s a dance with danger, a gamble on love; a shot at redemption with every beat of the heart, making each moment the one to remember.

Resound is the sound of The Foreign Resort in party mode,” quips the band. “We wanted to try a different mood, while still keeping the energy and this is what came out of it: Less contemplating, more dancing! Lyricwise, it’s a love song with a happy ending. Don’t worry though, there will be lots of darkness, despair, and unhappy endings on the full album.”

The Foreign Resort skillfully combines the mysterious allure of The Cure’s Pornography era with a dynamic production reminiscent of LCD Soundsystem, offering a unique musical expression. Intricate guitar lines wrapped in reverb play over the solid foundation laid by Steffan Petersen’s bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming. At the center of it all, Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen’s vocals are tight and earnest, demanding the listener’s focus with every note.

The Foreign Resort has 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, including SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal, and Nocturnal Culture Night. After releasing several independent albums, and eager to take their sound to the next level, the band inked a deal with popular Toronto-based Artoffact Records.
