Is there a burgeoning of a new brand of gothic, warped 808-inspired hip hop electronica spearheaded by Salem? If so than this should definitely be considered one of the leaders of the pack. Really good stuff.

Influenced by The Knife, Salem and Shackleton. Love these.. introducing Fostercare

This is dark, like an overhanging thunder storm, it’s sensual, it’s threatening and it’s glorious.

Bio

FOSTERCARE is influenced by many things--but particularly contradictions, juxtapositions and dark, unpredictable characters. It's dark music from a setting like Lord of the Flies, and also daydreaming, childlike walls of sound. There is a dance feeling, but only from a strange overcast daze felt after the club. There are tropical melodies and crunk vocals and religious feelings and darkwave synths.

Influences: The Knife, SALEM, Burial, Fever Ray, "Caribbean Queen", Manuel Gottsching, Cocteau Twins, My Bloody Valentine. David Lynch and Minimal everything. Early shoegazing and songs about animals, wilderness, natural processes and wanting.

FOSTERCARE's visuals and performances are an extension of the music. The live shows are generally projected video and costume extensions of the music. The feeling of the performances are meant to be like a dream that you can't quite see clearly, that sucks you in & then suddeny stops; a distorted vacuum incorporating an all-white football outfit, images of tropics, ufos, children and crystals.
