Almost a year and a half since the release of their latest album, New Frontier (October 28th, 2014), produced by heavyweight John Fryer (Nine Inch Nails, Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode), The Foreign Resort is still gracing the shelves of buzzing record stores like Josey Records on buzzing record store days like Record Store Day (April 16th, 2016). The band was also spotted, live flesh and blood, playing last month (March 15th) at The Double Wide for the Moon Sounds Records: An Evening of Shoegaze showcase. The clan from Coppenhagen, a drip away from The Cure for their forlorn fog rock, most recently released a five song EP as of October 23rd, 2015 romanticizing the American Dream. Luckily touring American music festivals like CMJ and SXSW since 2010 with bands like DIIV and A Place to Bury Strangers, they’ve witnessed an American way of life less fictionalized and idolized than perhaps taught to them in their Danish tongue. Now, members Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen – Vocals/Guitar/Bass, Morten Hansen – Drums/Vocals, and Steffan Petersen – Guitar/Bass are hyping their latest music video for “Suburban Depression”, a nouveau take on the lives of American housewives through the eyes of…well…foreigners. As the uppers kick in and the lights dim, the ladies of suburbia turn into each their own sinner. With regret, remorse, and a sinister craving for likability and attention, the ordinary housewife primped with pearls and a serving tray spins upside down, around, and against the pole of her “own private hell”.
