California has hosted no shortage of stellar post-hardcore acts, and Sacramento-born A Foreign Affair is only one of the latest to rise to attention in the Golden State.
Recently, the band released a music video for their track "Awake," a single which will be featured on their EP coming out later this year. The band's instrumentals are very reminiscent of more experimental bands such as fellow Sacramento natives and post-hardcore maestros Dance Gavin Dance, and this definitely isn't a bad thing.
Check the music video out below!
"Awake" is more than just a pretty song, as the lyrics run deep. Says frontman Alex Strobaugh of the song: "'Awake' is a song that encompasses the feeling of being haunted by someone's memory. It's about coming to terms with living without someone who has been lost." Married with the mournfully wailing riffs in the background provided by guitarists Jared Cambridge and Nick Blevins, the lyrics hit with an uncommon weight. You can purchase this song from the bands Bandcamp, provided at the bottom.
Be sure to follow A Foreign Affair on their respective social media outlets if you are interested in keeping up with the latest news and information about their EP as it is released. Until then, stay tuned!
