A self-titled 2013 EP signalled the arrival of indie-rock quintet Foreign Diplomats as a promising new act, and they now take giant strides with first full-length Princess Flash. Helmed by ace American producer, Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, the Shins), the album showcases their impressive dynamic range and instrumental ability. Focus track "Beni Oui Oui" is a good place to start. We're betting there'll be no diplomatic immunity to their multi-faceted musical charms.
They recently played two gigs in France and, beginning at Le Sous-bis in Chicoutimi on Oct. 27, they're soon gigging extensively in Quebec plus two shows in Toronto. Check their FB for details.
