With less than 400 followers on Soundcloud, I guess you could say these guys have been hiding in the shadows (insert rim shot). Really though, Foreign Air are so fresh it was hard to find much information on them before this track debuted yesterday.
I’ve done some sleuthing and gathered that the duo are named Jacob and Jesse, and they reside somewhere around North Carolina. They also have a really cool philosophy behind the title of their upcoming EP, Youth Is Sad.
It’s built around the nostalgia you feel upon realizing the true beauty of youth after it has passed. “In The Shadows” plays on this theme as the narrator recounts an old relationship and yearns for the past.
With influences ranging from film scores to Nina Simone and Shaday, Foreign Air combine an indie-alternative sound with soul inspired falsettos à la Electric Guest. Thoughtful and bursting with energy, I’m expecting exciting developments from these two.
