Listen now: Foreign Tongues – Self-titled EP on Bandcamp

The entire EP can be streamed on the group’s Bandcamp. Foreign Tongues is recommended for fans of the loud-quiet-really loud brand of indie-rock, taking after bands like Nirvana, Balance & Composure, Dinosaur Jr. and Pavement.

Paper + Plastick owner Vinnie Fiorello praises the band’s ability to create a different atmosphere in each song on the EP. “It’s very dynamic and takes you on a ride,” Fiorello says. “The songs are heavy and light and have hooks and is still angry all at the same time.”

More about Foreign Tongues:
Writing a bio for Foreign Tongues is kind of like trying to describe an episode of Boy Meets World, but don’t run away yet just because I said that. An episode of Boy Meets World is a complex organism. For every funny or cute moment, there is a life lesson to be learned. And the life lesson can be learned both by the pre-teen middle-school viewer andhis parent. In short, Boy Meets World never really becomes irrelevant.

A Foreign Tongues release is a similarly complex experience. You can hear traces of Dinosaur Jr. There is some Sunny Day Real Estate and Pavement here. There is a lot of Nirvana here. And the New Hampshire/Massachusetts natives’ five-track self-titled EP was produced by Jay Maas of Defeater, so there is a certain distinguishable hardcore sound present.

The convergence of these influences produces a five-song EP where no song sounds like another, a result of going into the studio without a specific “sound” in mind. There is a common undertone that connects the songs to each other, something that fans of Balance and Composure, Tigers Jaw and Nirvana will appreciate.

Foreign Tongues’ self-titled EP is online now and will be seeing vinyl and cassette releases in the near future by Paper + Plastick Records.

Foreign Tongues is:
Cameron Moretti – Vocals
James Scuderi – Guitars
Sean Harrington – Guitars
Nick Holman – Guitars
Andy Tamulonis – Bass
Joey Barthlette – Drums, Percussion
