Alex was sharing about the creation process:
“I was just tired of that whole Rock’N’Roll lifestyle… and well, I don’t think this record will play on the radio… and also, the recording in studio as a band is always a little cold, but for this project, it was more live, more instinctive… more as I always wanted.
At first, I didn’t think about doing an album, I didn’t think about writing music, I’m more into writing and I don’t really think about it after. That’s pretty much how it was in the last 2 years.”
“Windows in the Sky” is the first solo album by Alex Henry Foster,
lead singer and songwriter for the Juno Awards nominee post-rock band Your Favorite Enemies.
Written between Tangier and Montreal, “Windows in the Sky” has been crafted in a fragile state of emotional isolation following the passing of his father, a devoted believer to whom he was estranged, after a long battle with cancer. Foster explores the nature of faithlessness, sorrows and solitude while trying to find hopeful directions within the disorientation and the confusion brought about by grief.
Windows in the Sky, which will be released on November 9, is composed of 8 tracks, none of which are below 5 minutes. In all, you get 1 hour of music, mixing elements of post-rock, shoegaze, noise psych, all wrapped in an avant-garde voicing of spoken poetry.
