‘Black Lodge’ will be the last single released from FOE’s critically acclaimed debut ‘Bad Dream Hotline’ coming out on Monday 23rd July 2012.
‘Black Lodge’ which is named after the fictional setting featured in Lynch’s infamous TV series Twin Peaks, demonstrates FOE’s unique take on story telling that clashes childlike innocence with the impending sense of the unknown, whilst perfectly bookending this first chapter for FOE. ‘Black Lodge’ which will be accompanied by the never before heard ‘Frankenstein’ follows ‘A Handsome Stranger Called Death’ which went on the B List at 6Music.
‘Bad Dream Hotline’, produced by Entrepreneurs, mixed by Dan Grech (Howling Bells) and Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Foals) is an infusion of FOE’s twisted fairy tales that mirror her real life experiences, nightmares and subsequent vulnerability.
