Alternative Duo FOREIGN AIR Share Donnie Darko Inspired Track & Video
September 20, 2021 BY Nettwerk
Enigmatic electro-indie/alternative duo Foreign Air share their glitchy new track “Anything’s Possible” that is set to a slinky haunting beat. The clip, inspired by the cult classic film Donnie Darko, throws the viewer into a trippy sun-drenched alternate reality complete with dancing pink rabbits.
Jesse Clasen and Jacob Michael explain, “Anything’s Possible was loosely inspired by Jake Gyllenhaal’s character Donnie Darko. The main character in the song has a hard time fitting in with the world around him. He goes through life in a sleepwalking daze exploring what it means to be alive, to be in love, and questioning the things he is taught. The song was written in Los Angeles with Bram Inscore (Troye Sivan, Rina Sawayama) at the start of the pandemic just as the world was beginning to shut down which inspired the song’s melancholy underlying tone.”

Foreign Air dropped their debut album, Good Morning Stranger, in October of 2020. Before that, they released 10 singles, as well as the For The Light EP, starting with the glitchy, spectral “Free Animal,” which became an immediate hit. Nike snapped up the latter for an ad – and everyone from Samsung, Vodafone, Microsoft, to Showtime, ABC, and Vice soon followed. All told, Foreign Air’s music has been streamed more than 140 million times on Spotify and Apple, they have been featured on sites like Billboard, Grammy.com and COLLIDE and they have toured with notable acts like Misterwives, Bishop Briggs, Bleachers and more.
