A lush and sumptuously arranged record, ‘For Foes’ is an ambitious album focusing on a central character, who is reflecting on his life’s loves, losses and betrayals. Each track provokes new questions about the protagonist’s life and each is painted against a memorable, cinematic backdrop - from the beaches of Castlerock to the historic churches of St. Petersburg.
Previous fans of Adam and Ben’s work (in indie-rockers The Good Fight) will be familiar with their closely woven harmonies and soulful use of melody. On ‘For Foes’ this is taken to new heights, soaring falsetto and dense backgrounds imbue these songs with an ethereal, otherworldly quality.
A deftly realised debut, ‘Foe Foes’ provides a brand new soundtrack for anyone that finds themselves falling in or out of love.
