On April 16, 2013, Portland, Oregon-based Expunged Records released the debut, self-titled full-length from Portland’s own Foreign Talks, a four-piece indie-pop band.
Their unique brand of indie-pop is created by blending fast-paced lyricism, four-part vocal harmonies, and syncopated, hook-driven guitar riffs. Some may compare them to the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club and Local Natives. Comprised of ten songs, Foreign Talks combines Marcus Fischer’s (vocals, guitar) raw vocal timbre and razor-like cadence with a contrasting unique and powerful falsetto from his brother, Madison Fischer (vocals).
