Foreign Born have that uniquely Los Angeles sound about them, relatively light rock with a tinge of the melodramatic, that marries to produce a very listenable sound. The band consists of Lewis Nicolas Pesacov (Guitars), Matt Popeluch (Vocals, Guitars), Garrett Ray (Drums), and Arial Rechtshaid (Bass).
I do not know a great deal about Foreign Born, but to the best of my knowledge On A Wing Now is their first full length album. They have a very polished sound and compliment each others musical styles.
They are one of an increasing number of bands that see their marketing future in the Internet, they have both a Blog, and a MySpace page where you â€˜can try before you buyâ€™, I also believe they have been featured on the TV series â€˜Chuckâ€™.
Union Hall (track one) seems to be the song that sums Foreign Born up, part chant, part mantra, part classic rock. This is without question a hit waiting to be discovered. Into Your Dream (track two) is quintessential Southern California surf music, The Beach Boys could not have done it better.
All in all I give Foreign Born very high marks, their sound may not be ground breaking, but there again ground breaking is not always a good thing, I value my ear drums! I like this band a lot, this is a band that I would go out of my way to watch on stage. Once you have sampled them, go grab your own copy from Amazon.
