The Foreign Resort Short Info

The Foreign Resort are Denmark’s finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, led by singer and songwriter Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen. 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’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 DIIV, The Soft Moon, The KVB, Slowdive, Minor Victories and, most recently, Cold Cave. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 400 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Wave Gotik Treffen in Germany, Canadian Music Week 2017 and POP Montreal 2017. The trio has toured with The Raveonettes, A Place to Bury Strangers, Swervedriver and a number of other bands and willl continue to play shows at venues and festivals in 2018 while preparing their next full length release, preceded by the single “She is Lost“.
