Foreign Air is the nomadic duo of Jacob Michael and Jesse Clasen. After sharing a Dropbox

folder of beats and song ideas, they began an online collaboration that gave birth to the


Since the arrival of their debut single 'Free Animal' in November last year, the alt-pop duo has

enjoyed a meteoric rise as one of the year's buzziest new acts, with Pigeons & Planes

dubbing them one of '20 Artists About It Blow', cracking Spotify's Viral Top 20 Chart, and

earning spins from Zane Lowe Beats 1, KCRW, and most recently Sirius XM Alt Nation.

Foreign Air followed up 'Free Animal' with equally goliath singles 'In The Shadows' and

'Echo' and recently revealed the final cut 'Better For It' off their debut EP 'For The Light,'

released September 23rd. An ethereal experience from the soothingly sensual opening notes

to the soaring instrumental production, 'Better For It' is a cool, moody soundscape with warmth

in its edge. The track features glistening airy synths and breathy falsettos in a stunningly

sophisticated union of sound.
