Foyer Red Sign to Carpark, Share New Song ‘Etc’

    Brooklyn’s Foyer Red have signed to Carpark Records, marking the announcement with a new single titled ‘Etc’. It follows the recently released tracks ‘Flipper’, ‘Pickles’, and ‘Pollen City’. Check it out below.

    Talking about the new song, which was co-produced by Jonny Schenke, Elana Riordan said in a statement:

    My character in ‘Etc’ finds themselves in a dysfunctional relationship in which gender informs internal struggles of power and control. Instead of addressing the problem they state it plainly while asking vague and broad questions about the nature of the world. Rather than seeking a new system they find ways to play into that system to ultimately get what they want in the short-term. Echoing the stark sonic changes in the song, Mitch’s character is on a different page entirely. Taking a note from Algorithms to Live By: The Computer Science of Human Decisions, they are fixated on the optimal stopping problems, seeking to maximize the reward of a great parking space and minimize the cost of distance from the front doors and time spent circling around holding out for a better spot. The syllables are so stiff and stressed at unnatural points in the last verse to exemplify how mechanical the whole process has been, where the character is in their head crunching data to guarantee satisfaction with the outcome.
