ALT POP QUARTET
DROP NEW TRACK
Utah-based, alt-pop quartet, Foreign Figures, release their new track “Cold War” from their upcoming EP, Overzealous. The song was written to empower listeners to be true to themselves, especially in the era of social media when the negative effects of peer pressure and social expectations are at an all-time high. Already making waves, the four have opened for American Authors and X Ambassadors in addition to selling out several shows in the southwest region.
Formed by brothers Steve (drums) and Eric (vocals/piano) Michels, the two were introduced to Seth Dunshee (bass) through a mutual friend. Over the course of a few years, they re-invented their sound and upon meeting Jonny Tanner (guitar), they officially became Foreign Figures in 2014. They recorded their first single at Tanner’s studio and in March 2015, released their debut EP, Come Alive and performed to a sold-out crowd Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo, Utah. The following year, the group dropped their first full-length, Paradigm, and opened for X Ambassadors at UCCU Center followed by arena shows, including one with American Authors and a second with Lukas Graham for charity concert at Vivint Smart Home Arena. The four piece headed back into the studio to record material for Overzealous, releasing the first single, “Cold War” and “ADAN” this year. “Cold War” already has over 100,000 plays on Spotify and is setting up Overzealous as a hallmark album for the band.
Stay tuned as Foreign Figures welcome more music to finish 2017 and launch them into 2018, and catch them live on December 1 at JaM Cellars in,Napa, CA, December 7 at Last Exit Live in Phoenix, AZ.
