Indonesian heavy psych collective Foreseen presents their long-awaited debut album »Suspended Reality«, out now via Orange Cliff Records
Jakarta, Indonesia based heavy psych collective Foreseen presents their long-awaited debut album, »Suspended Reality«, which was just released on January 27th, 2023 via Orange Cliff Records.
02. Gate Of Thousands
03. Suspended Reality
05. Melting Mountains (feat. Gabriela Fernandez)
06. Devil’s Dervish
Heavy-psych sounds from Jakarta, Indonesia. Initially a bedroom project, vocalist/guitarist Faiz Aditya then took bassist and high-school mate Faisal Isfan along, met drummer Didan Faadhilah and guitarist Rafi Pandito at a Mooner gig, and got Arizha Rombe Datu on synthesizers/vocals; whom initially signed up as band manager. Foreseen’s first single »Behelit« is a tribute to Sigmun’s song of the same title. With »Gate Of Thousands« as the first single followed by »Melting Mountains« featuring Gabriela Fernandez as the second, their debut album »Suspended Reality« has finally come to kick off 2023 after 5 years in the making.
Orange Cliff Records comments: “Foreseen’s »Suspended Reality« might have reignited that fading amber in our hearts as we rediscover our fascination for ‘heavier than thou’ music all over again since we started the label in 2012.
The album feels flagrantly nostalgic at times, but Foreseen embraced it in quite a dignified manner. While referring to Foreseen’s music as ‘innovative’ may be an overstatement, the veracity of their sound is undeniably compelling.
»Suspended Reality« is available now through the good people at store The Store Front (purchase the album here as the proceeds will go to the band directly), our Bandcamp page and most streaming platforms out there.
Stunning works Foreseen and visuals Faiz Aditida (sludgevision).
A heavy note to start 2023!”
