Today, Foreign Air release their “anthemic” (American Songwriter) debut album ‘Good Morning Stranger,’ an eclectic and spirited 15-song collection brimming with sultry grooves and chant-worthy choruses.
‘Good Morning Stranger’ is the culmination of over 3 years of work from the DC/LA based duo Jesse Clasen and Jacob Michael, who wrote much of the album by sharing sonic ideas through Dropbox while living 3,000 miles apart. Read more about the making of ‘Good Morning Stranger’ in the band’s recent interview with Culture Collide and a track-by-track breakdown of ‘Good Morning Stranger’ on Live For Live Music.
New song “Monsters,” co-written with Jayson DeZuzio (Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors), encapsulates Foreign Air’s “cinematic” (AltCitizen) sound. “Monsters is a little bit ‘Stranger Things,’ a little bit ‘Halloween’” says the band. “I imagine friends going out on a Saturday night and realizing everywhere they go they’re running into creepy people. It could be legitimate monsters, the creepy person that drinks too much and talks a little too close to your face, or an ex. It’s an anthem about sticking together because as Randy Newman would say, ‘it’s a jungle out there.’”
To celebrate the release of ‘Good Morning Stranger,’ Foreign Air will host a socially distanced outdoor flea market pop-up at LA’s Silverlake Flea and Melrose Trading Post. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear the new album in full, shop a limited-run of Foreign Air merch and meet the band (masked and 6 feet apart, of course).
Their new EP showcases Band of Silver’s youthful exuberance, while at the same time reflecting the trio’s remarkable maturity and restraint.
