‘The American Dream’ EP
via Texas-based label Moon Sounds Records.
‘The American Dream’ consists of five songs with a simpler but more intense expression than ever heard before from the band. Following up their 2014 album ‘New Frontiers’, which was produced and mixed by John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, Cocteau Twins) and ranked among top albums of the year in many blogs and stations like WZBC and KDHX, the band first released ‘The American Dream’ in October 2015.
Led by singer and songwriter Mikkel Jakobsen, The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, combining the shadowy mysticism of The Cure’s Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Intricate reverb-enveloped guitar lines and Mikkel’s taut and sincere vocal delivery glide over Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming.
Having toured with The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers and Swervedriver, they have also shared bills with bands like DIIV, The Soft Moon, The KVB and Slowdive.
Their recently-finished tour is one of three made possible through a successful crowdfunding campaign, for which they ended up cooking Danish dinner and playing intimate shows in several American homes, which brought them even closer to the American people. The Foreign Resort are addicted to the allure of America’s lost highways. Since 2010, the band has rigorously played more than 350 shows across the United States and Europe. Highlights include performances at SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, the CMJ Music Marathon, and one of the world’s largest Goth festivals Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, Germany.
“It’s so great when we feel that passion about our music and could share it with others. We have some amazing fans and we are so grateful for that,” says Mikkel Jakobsen.
