Alex Henry Foster – ‘The Power of the Heart’ Review

Alex Henry Foster (AHF) is a Canadian musician, singer, producer, and composer, best known as the frontman of Juno Awards nominee band Your Favorite Enemies. In November 2018, Foster released a first solo album “Windows in the Sky” (Hopeful Tragedy Records) 

With shades of: Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Fugazi, Pixies, My Bloody Valentine, Mars Volta, Radiohead, Swans and Nick Cave – Silent Radio best described the group as “Sonic Youth meets Slint at a party hosted by Mogwai!” 

His new single – ‘The Power of the Heart’ a brilliant adaptation of the Lou Read track first released in 2010 by Peter Gabriel –  released earlier this year on streaming services, is a great place to start for newcomers. 

Orchestral waves support elegantly evolving vocals, subtle atmospheric textures and a powerful emotive chorus.   Almost tribal rhythms driving you through the story. The single will be offically available for purchase from September. 

Watch out also for ‘Son of Hannah’ – an eerie build up of sound-scaping and space building leads to an explosive climax with belting vocals and heavy instrumentation. 

“The Hunter (By the Seaside Window)” is a stand out track from ‘Windows in the Sky’ – Leading out with some solid guitar riffs and a variety of lead tones and fluid licks. Passionatley delivered dialogue ride over psychedelic undertones, carrying the journey to a seismic climax. 

NOT ONE TO MISS LIVE! The band are famed for their impressively dynamic performances with a variety of instrumentation, infectious energy, emotive soundscapes and tight powerful execution.
