Foie Gras is set to release a brand new EP on Yellow Year Records later this year. In the meantime, check out the first single, “Red Moon,” which Noisey premiered last week and described as being “somewhere at the tortured borders between drone, noise, doom metal, and shoegaze.”
Foie Gras is a Bay Area solo dronescapist, while some in her generation are screaming in bikinis that you only live once, her response has been to say “Remember that you too must die.” Listening to Foie Gras is like giving yourself permission to indulge in something that is at once illicit, sacred, sacrilegious and startlingly rich.
Foie Gras is unabashedly loud and mystic, gentle and soft. Guitar driven, she lives at the intersections of secure drone and reimagined Americana, as if Brian Eno and Patsy Cline have committed themselves to an endless and passionate love aﬀair. Wake up, this is where your daughters have wandered oﬀ to. Foie Gras’ droning chilling songs remind us there is nothing wrong with beauty, nothing wrong with imagining your own death. Her powerful folk songs speak about a young woman’s calm acceptance of a fleeting life.
