EP Review: How Strange the Night

Title:  How Strange the Night (BandCamp)

Tulsa, OK’s Foreign Home’s debut mini-album, How Strange the Night, is a collection of seven earnest post punk / indie rock tunes.  With a sound that could be best described as a melding of Joy Division and Archers of Loaf, Foreign Home tackle a combination of styles that you don’t often hear.  The EP opens with the most Joy Division-y track of the bunch “Catholic Guilt,” a dark and somber song that sets the stage for what is to come.  How Strange the Night is a dark and moody EP that beautifully flows from one song to the next.  Foreign Home is a talented band, not afraid to take their music in a unique direction and How Strange the Night is a strong debut.
