Melbourne five piece Foreign/National are back with their latest single titled ‘The Hedonist’. Another product of the band’s collaborative partnership with Joey Walker (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard), the single is still grounded in the warped aesthetic which dominated their earlier work, but ultimately takes a heavier cue from earlier disco in its approach to rhythm. Kicking and screaming as it surges forward, The Hedonist purges lyrical frustration and a dark sense of wit in its quest to ask the age old question: why am I at this party if all it does is make me sad? Excellent, homegrown psychedelic pop music indeed!
