Foreign Films Reveal New Single + Video for “All The Love You Give”
Bill Majoros aka The Foreign Films is an award-winning and chart-topping Canadian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist blending classic and creative elements to reimagine the sonic future. This musical retro-futurism makes the heart glow with nostalgia yet inspires one to seize the day. The Starlight Serenade LP out on July 30th aims for even greater heights with dazzling songs that sparkle in a galaxy of sound.
Glittering synths and and searing guitar licks drive the track relentlessly forward whilst singer Ryan Young muses on the self-doubt the group have battled with throughout the pandemic. Crashing drums and reverberating vocal callbacks evoke a sense of longing, while remaining sonically in line with the band’s growing discography: a mix of pop hooks and triumphant, anthemic indie-rock.
