Last year, a trio from Wales called the Joy Formidable broke out in the US thanks in part due to an incredible LP called The Big Roar. This year, a trio from Wales called Man Without Country released Foe. While Foe isn’t quite as good as The Big Roar, it’s good enough to put them on the same page with the Joy Formidable and hints at certain things for Wales and its music scene.

It's nice to know Air's 10,000 Hz Legend robot is still getting work. The eerie modulated voice kicks in on Foe's title track, ominously whispering against a lush bed of dated synths, "Injustice will not stand/For every bomb that you diffuse, I will plant another." Like a Greek chorus, the voice is brought in several times throughout the record's 10 tracks—its mechanical acid tongue often delivering the headiest of blows. Thus is the emotional tone of Man Without Country's debut full-length, where every anthemic swell contains a sinister counterpoint.
