Yet again, we’ve joined forces with our good friends at Season Of Mist so that you can get an advance listen to a brand new track from one of their upcoming releases! This time we have a track from Foscor entitled ‘Ciutat Tràgica’, taken from the band’s next full-length Les Irreals Visions, which will see the light of day on June 9th.
The band comments: “Our premiere song ‘Ciutat Tràgica’ translates as ‘tragic city’ and it was admittedly also our first choice for the new album’s opening track and title. In terms of lyrics, this record maps the collective interactions, weaknesses, and individual hopes of human beings in a city as a metaphor – amplifying the myths that we face. Life as such is represented by a maze of places, paths, wefts, and bounds that make us into who we are. After receiving the translation into photography, which Dutch artist Nona Limmen developed around our concept, for the album artwork, and its cover, we realised the bigger scale and wider connection that everything had with the Modernist Art period. Isolating the experience of hallucination to treat the ventures and misfortunes of the human being in a changing and distressed society, this magical place becomes a dreamlike landscape of extremes where we locate the scene and its reality. The first song premiered perfectly describes the emotional dimension of the nature of our music. Reminiscent of the 80’s monochrome landscapes that we all have in mind, it offers the same intensity and vitality, which has always characterised us, and that people hopefully find thoughout this whole album. To work only with clean vocals and adding Catalan lyrics clearly marks a changing point for us. Last but not least, having Irish gentleman Alan A. Nemtheanga from Primordial performing vocals on this song makes it an even more special moment.”
