Foam cruise Seventh Street in search of love with their trippy new single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.
Spacey and soulful, soothing and seductive, supple and sweet, Seventh Streeth gently but insistently worms its way into your headspace with its infectiously mellow groove. But even as it swirls together percolating percussion, hazy vocals, nimble fretwork and multi-dimensional production into an intoxicating hit of dreamy indie psychedelia, the darker undertones of its nostalgic, yearning lyrics cast vague shadows of discontent against the black-light glow of the proceedings. Not bad for the sophomore single from two Texas brothers who record in a home studio that doubles as their apartment closet.
Then again, Foam’s Nikko and Mateo Vallejo aren’t just some noobs. They already have years of experience with live music and collaboration, working with a multitude of different bands, groups and artists. That badkground has clearly equipped them with the skills and mature insight to create what they believe to be their best and most personal project yet.
Foam aim to deliver a musical experience that is multi-genre influenced. Nikko and Mateo work hard to create a sound and aesthetic that can be considered as (but is definitely not limited to) psychedelic-indie. It comes sprinkled with traditional Latin and some psych-hop — though it also grazes experimental sounds and is always looking to push and test the limit. Foam are excited for what is to come and hope their vision will resonate with all people from every demographic.
