Foreign Talks, ‘The Spell’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
The young lads of Foreign Talks have a new video for ‘The Spell,’ a track from their self-titled debut, and Diffuser.fm is excited to offer an exclusive premiere.
All four members of this Portland group — brothers Marcus (vocals, guitar, bass) and Madison Fischer (vocals, percussion, keyboards), Tanner Steinmetz (guitar, bass) and Kevin Downes (guitar, percussion) — are in their late teens, and yet despite their youth, ‘The Spell’ and its accompany video are both whimsical and mature.
Thanks to their charming and dynamic four-part harmonies, the group has rightfully been likened to fellow indie-poppers Local Natives. Much like the Natives, Foreign Talks seem to draw inspiration from their natural surroundings, and that's evident in both their sound and in the look of this new video.
“This is a song about escaping your past self in hopes to start over somewhere beautiful,” Marcus Fischer tells Diffuser.fm. “The video’s main image was to symbolize running away from your old troubles, habits and situations.”
They actually make this point quite literally, as the video finds the foursome running through mountainous landscape somewhere near their hometown of Vancouver, Wash.
“I think everyone did a good job in creating that image, so needless to say, we love the way the video turned out,” he adds. “It was also a lot of fun hiking up to the locations for filming!”
