Following up the single “Tristesse”, Melbourne’s Foreign/National presents some super-chill sentiments on the new single “Too Sentimental” from their debut album produced by o.g. comrade Joey Walker (guitarist of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard fame). Yet another reason to love the never ending party that seems to be the Melbourne scene in Australia, F/N keep the excitement flowing freely with some sunny day feelings to chase away the clouds and humdrum elements that arrive in the insular eras of autumn & winter. As Foreign/National describes the single:
We started by trying to mirror Deerhunter’s soaring guitar sounds and eventually landed on something closer to Yes’ Owner of a Lonely Heart played on shittier gear.
