TUNE Foe - Cold Hard Rock
‘Cold Hard Rock’ is the fuzzed up, anti fairy-tale from suburban punkette, FOE aka Hannah Louise Clark, set for release 28th November - this will be her debut release on Vertigo Records.
FOE’s previous border-crossing offerings ‘Deep Water Heart Breaker’ and EP ‘Hot New Trash’ gave a glimpse into the wonderfully deranged world of a wig wearing, painted faced riot grrrl from Fleet.
FOE was born out of an alienated school experience, a love of history’s left of centre mavericks - Dahl, Lynch, Hitchcock, Zappa, PJ Harvey – and a chance meeting with a likeminded musical nomad, Entrepreneurs.
New single ‘Cold Hard Rock' - produced by Entrepreneurs and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arcade Fire, Pearl Jam, Portishead) - is a prime slice of Hammer-horror sleaze punk about relationships, sinking feelings of being betrayed and overwhelming sadness, culminating in the lingering line - "sea's coming it's dragging me down". Staying true to her 90’s DIY routes, FOE and her friend Lauren Humphrey have produced a limited edition fanzine which will be available at gigs, following on from the macabre tale of the Deep Water Heartbreaker.
After headlining a pulverising UK tour and playing coveted support slots for the likes of Mercury nominees Metronomy and German hard-core band Atari Teenage Riot.
This is unabashedly scuzzy and daring thrash rock-pop – introducing the darker side of 2012.
