Biography

FP's members combine a broad range of influences and backgrounds. Every member contributes and expresses their personality which is reflected in the music. Foreign Powder was formed in August 2010 by lead singer Kirsten Lefeldt and guitarist Rod Hendricks who couldn't be of more different backgrounds, but found out that such thing as musical soulmates exists. "We are not trying to be a rock band, we are just throwing in everything we are and we are telling the stories that we want to share. We want you to listen to our songs and find yourself in them. We want you to come to our shows and leave with the energy we gave you."

Most songs are written by Kirsten Lefeldt. "I like everything from soft melodies to loud distorted guitars, depending on the mood of the song. I like to play with words and I write in English and German. Most of the time I don't plan to write a song, they ask me to be written when the time is right."

But the idea behind Foreign Powder is that there is not only one person that writes and directs. Everyone contributes. "The chemistry between the four of us is what makes our music unique."

Lyrics

Paralyzed Inside

Written By: Kirsten Lefeldt

It catches up with you,
it finds you in the oddest places
So many years, still you feel their cutting gazes
Frightened little soul, keep playing dead
Hide without motion so they can’t attack

It’s like you still walk that short road every day
Starring at your feet wishing yourself away
They did not like you. You couldn’t do it right
Feeling so small so paralyzed inside

But how can they judge when they don’t have faces?
How can they still hurt you when all that’s left are traces?
I am sooo tired
I am sooo tired of fighting….
I am sooo tired
I am sooo tired of fighting…

I cannot make anyone stay
Perfection won’t cut it in states of decay
Don’t say that you miss her when you are with me
You might as well just be one of those who paralyze me

But how can they judge when they don’t have faces?
How can they still hurt you when all that’s left are traces?
I am sooo tired
I am sooo tired of fighting….
I am sooo tired
I am sooo tired of fighting
How can they still hurt you when all that’s left are traces
