Foreign Body is an alternative rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The group's six members have a storied history within Omaha's music scene, such collective history informs their current musical output. Influences for this project range from freak folk to pop rock, from Bessie Smith to Bach, these elements swirl within Foreign Body's sonic meringue, a melodic blend of ambient textures and bombast.
Hidden Hospitals' frequently dark, powerful music strikes a balance with hopeful and often profound lyrical content. Finding their stride in two fully produced EP releases, the Chicago rock quartet's sound continues to resist encapsulation. It is undeniably human; familiar at its core, modern and austere in its execution.
Produced and mixed by J. Hall, Surface Tension marks Hidden Hospitals' first full-length album; a record that churns heavy with kinetic energy and precise movements. Carefully paced through 12 engaging tracks, a stable and familiar thread ties together the album as a whole. The band transitions seamlessly between sharp, taut guitar-rock reminiscent of Diamond Eyes era Deftones and an atmosphere of electronica evoking Radiohead's Kid A. The band takes a minimalist approach to songwriting--the thoughtful process of reduction, leaving nothing but what's necessary. In this whitespace Hidden Hospitals gives us a glimpse of a persistent absence in today's rock n' roll. They let us hear what we've been missing.
