Foreign – Strange World [Eye For An Eye Recordings]
“Strange World” is not merely an album; it’s a sonic expedition that probes the aberrations of a society shaped by the strange and transformative influence of technology. The music industry, a microcosm of this surreal universe, has become an intricate web of formatted reactions and impersonal interactions.
Foreign, the musical observer, takes the audience on a solitary journey through the night—a time of introspection where raw feelings and emotions are eclipsed by the numbing shadows of social media and the relentless march of technology.
The album resonates with an unmistakable romanticism, shrouded in a dark, mysterious atmosphere. Each track is a testament to the disquieting beauty found in the synthesis of opposites—the warm, pulsating beats of EBM intertwining with the ethereal melodies of synth-pop. The result is a musical landscape that is simultaneously haunting and alluring, much like the strange world it reflects.
As the listener navigates through the album, they become companions to the lonely observer, a nocturnal thinker contemplating the trajectory of the world. Foreign’s evocative lyrics paint a vivid picture of a world losing touch with its own humanity, a place where genuine connection is overshadowed by the mechanical hum of progress.
“Strange World” stands as a poignant commentary on the paradoxes of our age, wrapped in a musical tapestry that captivates the senses. It’s an invitation to explore the corridors of introspection, to confront the bizarre reality we inhabit, and to rediscover the raw, authentic emotions that seem to be slipping away in the wake of progress.
With its ebmish and synth-popish allure, “Strange World” is an immersive experience—a musical sojourn that leaves an indelible mark on the listener’s soul, prompting them to reflect on the enigmatic world we call home. Foreign invites you to step into the shadows, where the strange becomes familiar, and the familiar becomes strange.
