Foreign Islands

Foreign Islands were part of  NYC’s  punk-funk scene around 2006. Building a reputation for electrifying live sets, the group had taken over from where the Rapture left off, just roughened things up in a particularly au fait way.

We loved their single “We Know You Know” so much we picked it up for a one -off release . It maybe has more in common with “House Of Jealous Lovers” than anything  by the Rapture but still.

The 2006 release had added remixes to go with the Nu rave dance phenomenon at the time .

Filthy Duke’s remix of “We Know You Know It” was worth getting excited about on the dance floor.

Foreign Islands had great exuberance — an exuberance that seems somehow more genuine, more authentically hedonistic, than some of say The Klaxon’s work .
