Bicoastal indie-rock duo Foreign Air have revealed “Ultra Mega Love,” the latest single from their forthcoming debut album ‘Good Morning Stranger,’ out 10/16. “Ultra Mega Love” opens with a neo-Spaghetti Western snarl before diving into a propulsive melody and a sultry, expansive chorus. Foreign Air’s Jesse Classen and Jacob Michael were inspired by Ennio Morricone scores while writing ‘Good Morning Stranger,’ and that influence is no clearer than on “Ultra Mega Love.”

Listen to “Ultra Mega Love” here:

"Ultra Mega Love" - which was produced by Konrad Snyder (Rainbow Kitten Surprise, Milo Greene) - brims with shimmering confidence, cementing Foreign Air as skilled purveyors of “anthemic infectious electro-pop” (American Songwriter). AltCitizen called the track, ”spacey and ethereal, it’s a little grungy…It feels cinematic, sheathed in a warm filter..."

“We wrote ‘Ultra Mega Love’ in Nashville with tons of vintage gear,” says Foreign Air. “We like to work in a kind of manic way, in the sense that everything is always plugged in and ready to go so you can just make noise! Some of our favorite guitar tones and sounds on the album are on this song. It comes from a childlike nature of exploring ideas and letting the unexpected happen. Lyrically the song is about embracing the weirdness inside each of us - at the end of the day that is ultimately what brings us all together.”

With its frontmen living on opposite sides of the country - Jesse is based in LA, while Jacob lives in Washington, DC - Foreign Air has always been a band predicated on collaborating virtually. They recently got creative with a split-screen performance for Jam In The Van, which featured selections from “Good Morning Stranger.” Watch their live performance session here:

Foreign Air have toured with Phantogram, Bishop Briggs and Alice Merton, played Firefly, Hangout and Shaky Knees, and have clocked over 100 million Spotify streams before ever releasing a proper album. Their music has soundtracked global advertising campaigns for Samsung, Nike, Vodafone, Microsoft and more, in addition to television syncs on Showtime, ABC, TNT, Vice and Fox.
