Cosimé Renard These songs impress me with their intensity and authenticity, they are dark and complex and powerful. There's pain and desperation, rage and sweet melancholy in them, and at the same time they are making me want to dance with a smile on my face. If you are into post punk, and any of this is making sense to you, BUY THIS ALBUM! It will make you hurt in just the right way. Favorite track: Send Your Heart to the Riot.

In Gloom 05:04
You are slipping again You see the signs you want And it's all made up You're gonna whine and pretend You lost your nerve And blamed me for the breakup You lost your nerve ‘cause something that you made up You lost yourself You're screaming at me again You dramatize and act As if you're victimized Breeding lies to defend Its all your life, it's one big lie It's all dead It's all in gloom And calling out your name Kind on the outside Vengeance feeds your call Now I know who you really are I am calling you out Months of madness behind me Friendships burn and fall Trail of flames behind you Tortured soul

We both followed our hearts We both wanted to leave We both thought we were innocent We were on fire and couldn’t foresee And everything we believed was crumbling Flaming hearts can’t see Our burning love was so intense We would be lost into deep So go write out your anger Speak the truth about me? I felt us both coming reeling down We didn’t put out the fire  We all go through this process I guess you're over me, right? I felt us both coming reeling down You go burn in the night We both burn in the night We lost it in the fire We'd go down  Into endless fun Thrown out there Into something we're not Fooling ourselves We came down with desire We came down with an image to be You turned us into something we're not Fooling ourselves We feel the heat It burned us down You should be lost with me In any way what you get, you deserve You know you're born to please All those nights I lost myself And pleaded, "You gotta come with me" In every way we did go higher You'd go higher with me

She is Lost 04:58
Hearts do believe But we cannot kiss tonight Hearts they deceive Lies Hearts want to believe We belong together tonight Believe Lies Summer seems to crawl Haunts me tonight  Summer seems so cruel She's further out of sight  The colder the nights And your eyes so bright Colder than ice Lies She is lost Hearts are naive And we will never kiss tonight Hearts they deceive  Lies A heart wants to believe But we will never ever unite Believe

Clouds 03:48
Come on down Everything is silent Gather round Every last one  Follow me  To the horizon  Walk along  There's nothing to fear They're nice when they're talking to you Go back to everything you're gonna fear This night is a mindless sleep Wake up before they take the rest of you It took years to grasp It took years to sell Go on just hide Keep moving on Come on down Everything is silent Gather round Every last one  Follow me Too far from everything  Walk along With nowhere to be

Obsessing 04:14
Hide and seek You know you have to let it go You're not for us At least that's what you show A thousand eyes Watching you as you drown A thousand forces Pulling you down Lost in greed It’s like you want us to burn your vivid dream You’ll carry on and never learn You have the power in you And you turned it all against us And you ‘re pulling us down, down, down... Acting smart, we laugh at you. At your confessions Enemies because of you. At your discretion Try to scream, scream at you. It’s your oppression Like a child in overflow. It’s your obsession It’s you, obsessing
7.
Come right down to the hunting The true you Join right into the crushing Hearts fade out, turns into violence You don’t want to let it go Hearts fade out in the empty, silent cold It’s all you want to know Someone good turns into someone One that you don’t know Was it coming too fast, the promise? Left you dead and cold But the hatred grows old deep inside you All those whimpering nights when you tried to…

Hot Summers 03:59
He says it’s true but he’s lying And you believe because you’re dumb You joined the herd, you are abiding Now he turned over and we’re done Hot summers Do you feel alright? Hot wonders Hold on tight There’s a fire coming in We will all just burn A hot awakening Unless it turns We told you he was fakin’ it We thought it didn’t feel right It wasn’t meant to turn out like this But will it make you sleep at night? Hot. We’re waiting for it Hot. Sedate, absorb it Hot. Try to ignore it Hot. It’s true

She felt free A sense of relief  Enjoyed it in a moment of silence  She saw flowers rain from the sky And she smiled to herself  Send your heart to the riot Send your heart to fame in the sky Send your heart to the riot Send your heart to the sky Higher, higher it's the only way to start  High above the ground it's all she ever waits for Coming back it's the only way to your heart It's the only way But you broke her heart And it's only you that she cares for Going on every single day  Spinning round and round Until there's nowhere to go Send your heart to the riot Send your heart to fame in the sky Send your heart to the riot Send your heart everywhere she goes She broke free a sense of relief  Enjoyed it in a moment of silence  She saw flowers rain from the sky  And she smiled to herself  But it takes too long And there's only one thing that she cares for Going on every single day Spinning round and round, looking forward to…

Outnumbered 04:54
Come on! Turn on the black lights Come out and see Move on  Into the dark night Fall down, believe Crush hard Bring out the hate tonight Move on To bleed Going out Try to disguise it Decency’s drowned And so will you Memories and heartache Minds are hard to cheat Falling for their game Denial Growing up in fear Lies from the machine Calling out the weak We fall We're outnumbered  Stay scared Turn up the nightmares Move on and breathe Inside, nothing but darkness Hopes have drowned And we are few

about

“The Foreign Resort have created something really special for modern post-punk…This album is a must-have on vinyl – it’s dark but has addictive bounce.” – CVLT NATION

““Outnumbered,” is yet another gem of black leather, noisy shimmery, and grim portent.” – Decibel Magazine

“Put simply, these eleven songs go right for the jugular with a bracing blend of razor-sharp post-punk and chilly synth-pop that — most important of all — is supremely catchy.” – Opus

“A really strong release with so much love to the detail and emotional roller coaster scenery.” – Reflections of Darkness

“Faster, better mixed and full of strong melodies…a record that deserves to be among the most exciting this year” – Sanctuary.cz

“…”Outnumbered” has all the equipment to open the doors to the big lounges. Their sound remains authentic, the dark moments are stunning, while the complexity of their musical structures is unprecedented.” – Rockway.gr

“The eleven tracks of the album show off a biting and convincing darkwave, in a balance between anger and melancholy; an epic and melancholic guitar-sound…one of the best publications of the current year.” – Ascension Magazine

“…the record is so powerful and so successful that you can not afford to miss [it]”. – Prémonition

“A fantastic journey through colored neon lights wrapped in melancholy fog that isolates and offer a delicate and distressing introspective vision.” – Metalhead.it

THE FOREIGN RESORT

Formed in 2009 in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Foreign Resort has spent 10 years creating and honing an explosive yet melancholy post-punk sound that is as rich as it is exciting, and as immediate as it is dark and deep.

The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure's Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Intricate reverb-enveloped guitar lines glide over Steffan Petersen’s bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming, all while Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen’s taut and sincere vocal delivery demands attention.

The Foreign Resort have toured relentlessly, addicted to the allure of America’s lost highways, sharing bills with bands like Cold Cave, DIIV, The Soft Moon, She Past Away, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories, Ash Code and many more. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 420 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals, including SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal, and Nocturnal Culture Night.

After releasing several independent albums, and eager to take their sound to that next level, the band has inked a deal with popular Toronto-based Artoffact Records.
