Foyer – “Self-Adhesive Label Maker”

“Self-Adhesive Label Maker” is a fun new track from Montreal-based quartet Foyer. A bouncy bass line and playful key-laden pulse craft an enamoring introduction, driving to a bass-fronted sequence fondly reminiscent of The Jam; Bruce Foxton would be proud of the perky bass affection on display here. Meanwhile, the vocals exude a suavely infectious allure, its sporadic ferocity reminding fondly of Gang of Four. The listing of occupations, and states of varying complicity, makes for a compelling finale.
