Foreign/National: “All Honesty”
Melbourne quintet Foreign/National are starting to make a name for themselves with their off-kilter psychedelic pop. Ahead of the release of their debut EP, the band has released the music video for their second single, “All Honesty.” The track has a retro vibe and a hazy, nostalgic quality to it without sounding tired or overdone. The tight drums and melodic bass line propels the song forward as the distorted vocals shout out catchy quips like, “In all honesty, I can’t see where you fit into all this mess.” The hazy video, directed by Arthur & Angus, shows the band hanging out along the Mornington Peninsula coastline, near where the band members grew up. And if you’re into watching a band strip down to their underwear and jump in the ocean, there’s some of that here for you too!
Be sure to keep an eye out for Foreign/National’s new EP, which was originally slated for April of this year, so it can’t be too far away.
