The Foreign Resort – Dark new-wave / explosive post-punk.
Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, 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 the motorik bass and powerful drumming, all while the taut and sincere vocals demands your 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 incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal and Nocturnal Culture Night.
The trio will release their next full length album “Outnumbered” on Artoffact Records April 5th, preceded by the single by the same name and followed up with shows and festival appearances in Europe and North America throughout 2019.
NITE are Canadian-born twin brothers, Kyle and Myles Mendes, based in Dallas, TX. The duo create a unique hybrid of electronic-tinged rock with a nod to 80’s-influenced dream-pop. Kyle and Myles’ powerful dueling vocals might remind oneself of Tears for Fears’ Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, with a delivery of tasteful guitar hooks amidst bright synthesizers and throbbing drum machines.
NITE completed two full tours within North America in 2016 with Seabound (Germany) and The Foreign Resort (Denmark), and also a U.S. tour with The New Division (Los Angeles) in 2018. In July 2017, NITE released their album, Reborn, on Cleopatra Records, which features the songs “Dreamer”, “Godless City”, and “I Long 4 U”, as a follow-up to their 2014 self-release, I Am Not Afraid. Spring 2019 will see NITE release their third album, Sleepless, on Cleopatra.
Whoa Thunder (St. Louis)
A way to capture a unique, high energy take on synth-soaked New Wave boy/girl guitar pop–inspired equally by Le Tigre, Sparks, Beck, New Pornographers, and the Knack. From St. Louise without compromise.
