FOE - 'Cold Hard Rock' new video!
COLD HARD ROCK single out January 9th
Big jagged guitars, drawling melodies and glitching kick-drums.” – NME
‘Cold Hard Rock’ is the fuzzed up, anti fairy-tale from suburban punkette, FOE aka Hannah Louise Clark, set for release 9th January 2012- this will be her debut release on Vertigo Records.
Foe’s previous border-crossing offerings ‘Deep Water Heart Breaker’ and EP ‘Hot New Trash’ gave a glimpse into the wonderfully deranged world of a fancy dress loving loner from Fleet.
Foe was born out of an alienated school experience, a love of history’s left of centre mavericks - Dahl, Lynch, Hitchcock, Zappa, PJ Harvey – and a chance meeting with a likeminded musical nomad, Entrepreneurs.
New single ‘Cold Hard Rock' - produced by Entrepreneurs and mixed by Dan Grech (The Vaccines, Howling Bells) - is a prime slice of Hammer-horror grunge pop about adultery, sinking feelings of being betrayed and overwhelming sadness, culminating in the lingering line - "sea's coming it's dragging me down".
Staying true to her 90’s DIY routes, Foe has produced a limited edition fanzine, this time with help from her friend Max Kinghorn-Mills (Wildeflower) which will be available at gigs, following on from the macabre tale of the Deep Water Heartbreaker.
After headlining a pulverising UK tour and playing coveted support slots for the likes of Mercury nominees Metronomy and German hard-core band Atari Teenage Riot, Foe will be taking to the road again in January.
This is unabashedly scuzzy and daring thrash rock-pop – introducing the darker side of 2012.
