When Bill Majoros, operating as The Foreign Films, released his Fire From Spark EP, plans for a full-length were in advanced stage. Reality got in the way of the Hamilton, ON, musician, who re-released the EP in expanded format and is now adding two new songs by way of the Night Without The Day b/w Glitter single.
Majoros is a garage rocker with a soft spot for lush wall-to-wall arrangements. A concept that has "fail" written all over it, when not handled carefully. With the help of producer Michael Keire sax, string, horn and synths were added to Majoros' guitar. Balancing things out proved to be a time-consuming process, but all the hard work paid off handsomely. That evasive full-length is still going to happen, with a release penciled in for Spring 2012.
