Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, The Foreign Resort 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, Killing Joke, The Soft Moon, She Past Away and many more. Since 2010, the band has been rigorous in playing more than 500 shows across North America and Europe with performances at several festivals incl. SXSW, Iceland Airwaves, Canadian Music Week, POP Montreal, Nocturnal Culture Night, Wave Gotik Treffen and W-Fest.

The trio released the full length “Outnumbered” in 2019, followed by "The Rabbit Hole" EP in 2020 and "OutRemixed" in 2021. The new single "Overturn" is the first song from their forthcoming album to be released on Artoffact Records.
