Any fans of gritty despondent Psychedelic noise are going to want to check out the latest self-titled release from Parisian artist Foreigners Society.
If you could imagine the music of the Phobophobes, Sonic Youth, and Joy Division all merging in a cutting yet captivatingly melodic soundscape, you might be able to get an idea of what Foreigners Society has to offer.
The single constantly fluctuates between cold harsh Post Punk and dreamy tonally warm Psych Pop, and in part, offering both at the same time. If that isn’t a feat of aural alchemy, I don’t know what is. But what I do know, is that if I ever get the chance to witness that instrumental ingenuity live in the UK, I’m taking it.
You can check out Foreigners Society’s self-titled single which was released on January 2ndfor yourselves via Bandcamp.
