The Foreign Resort - She Is Lost

Hailing from Denmark's capital city, post-punk trio The Foreign Resort are two days away from officially releasing their new single 'She Is Lost', the first song from their next full length album. The band seem to be returning to the analogue sound of their 'New Frontiers' album, but in a more minimalistic way and with plenty of electronics and spacious drums to create a dreamy yet upbeat soundscape full of contrast. For lead singer Mikkel B. Jakobsen 'She Is Lost' is a very personal song about what he sarcastically refers to as “the summer of love”: “It was one of the worst summers in my life. I came out strong on the other side, but this song was written partly when things were looking very bad and I was not doing the right things to get to a better place and partly when I had realized it was not just me who was the problem. Hence the title 'She Is Lost'.” 
Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s dynamic drumming exquisitely embrace Mikkel's sophisticated reverb-enveloped guitar lines and captivating vocals producing a melancholic and yet buoyant effect. 
The band have also recently contributed the track 'Skyline/Decay' to the Alternative F̷acts: A Shoegaze Resistance Compilation, curated by DKFM Shoegaze Radio and are embarking on a ten-day Canada tour on April 20th.

While eagerly waiting for their new material, you can enjoy 'She Is Lost' below.
