Labelled the ‘Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave’, The Foreign Resort is definitely one of the few bands that are reinventing, along with Detroit’s Protomartyr and Vancouver’s Actors, the classic post-punk sound in a personal modern way.
‘She Is Lost’ is an intimate and sincere sad love song, heavily made of electronic analogue sound, synth and programmed beats and basslines combined with shoegazing reverb-guitar and emotionally tense vocals, wrapping together into a vortex of deep melancholy and melodic touching beauty.
The band’s long-awaited full-length will be released in the fall of 2018; in an interesting interview I had last summer with the singer/songwriter Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen here, he promised ‘one thing is for sure though. We’re keeping the drums big sounding on the next album’, be warned…
The official fan video, directed, filmed & edited by Chris Wallis, perfectly captures the essence of the song.
