The Foreign Resort
The Foreign Resort – a mix of dark new wave and 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 Steffan Petersen’s motorik bass and Morten Hansen’s powerful drumming, all while Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen’s taut and sincere vocal delivery 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 continue playing shows at venues and festivals throughout 2018 while preparing their next full length release on Artoffact Records in 2019, preceded by their latest single “She is Lost“.
Death. Sex. Doomed Romance. These three simple phrases define the sound and thematic presence of Panic Priest. The musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Jack Armondo (of “dark pop” duo My Gold Mask), Panic Priest is centered around Armondoʼs deep, crooning vocals while weaving together electronic beats, dreamy guitars and synths. Panic Priest creates midnight melodies that wonʼt soon leave your memory as dawn breaks.
Panic Priestʼs debut and self-titled illustration to the world saw itʼs release in May of 2018 under Negative Gain Productions and was mixed and recorded in part by Adam Stillson of the electronic/ shoegaze project New Canyons. Armondo crosses boundaries as he offers a host of technical skill by blending the likes of darkwave, post-punk, and synthpop into one unique melting pot. The album also features guest contributions from members of such acts as Wingtips, NITE, and Airiel.
“Itʼs a solid LP built on a foundation of well presented songs.”
– I Die:You Die
“…fans of early Tears for Fears and Peter Murphy’s Deep should love its moody
grooves, dark romanticism, and chilly synths.”
– Chicago Reader
“…a sound that while reminiscent of The Mission, inexplicably transcends genre with it’s opulent fervor.”
Experimental improvised analog electronics by Ollie Stench, a veteran of the Minneapolis punk scene. Some of Ollie’s musical projects include The Trapezoids, The Ed Gein Fan Club, and co-host of Abbi & Ollie’s Radio Vortex on KFAI.
Embracing the darkness and bridging the gulf between aesthetic worlds while filling the abyss with a flawless stream of bittersweet dance music.
Hyperkarma can often be found filling the floors at Dark Energy and Gothess events, as well as at Minneapolis’ annual Goth Prom and various other events.
