Portland, Oregon’s Indie-pop Foreign Talks hit the road to promote their new sophomore full-length “No Ceilings” release and they stopped at Sam Bond’s Garage on February 1st.
Their new album has an alluring, reggae-driven sound, yet still retains the band’s indie-pop vibe. The opening track “Cerveza” entices with a charming, sunny Reggae ambience while “Wasted” boasts bright, pop-rock energy that’s fun and engaging.
Exuberant commotion much? We think you’ll like it.
“Rip it Up Slow” is an exceptional track that will entice you to hear this fine, Reggae-loving band live when they come to town. Have a listen:

“The album has a lot of different vibes,” says lead vocalist Marcus Fischer. “The theme of this album is to believe in yourself, chase your dreams, and just all-around good vibes and love,” says Fisher, “I think the music reflects that.”

Foreign Talks is comprised of brothers Madison Fischer (lead vocals, percussion) and Marcus Fischer (lead vocals, guitar, bass), along with Tanner Steinmetz (guitar, bass, backing vocals), Kevin Downes (guitar, backing vocals, percussion) and Jeff Wagner (drums).
