Foreign/National – Mombasa

“You know you love me. Don’t deny it. You don’t need to say it. But say it.” Foreign/National’s Mombasa is a tale of what we really like, here at CHF. And that exactly is un-describable. No help right? But that’s what F/N is all about.

At least it’s like that for this song.

It’s a diss, and a compliment to that enigmatic and the sultry.

“I love you.”

“Oh, you said it.” she thought to herself, as she momentarily was stunned.

“Why did you say it?”

“Because I love you.”

“You do?”

“Yes. And why are you being a dick about this, Rebecca?” as he was frazzled. “You wanted to know, so I’m telling you!”

She knew what he was alluding at.

Did she mean it for him to come out right away to profess his love, like this?

“Why am I being so dumb?!” she thought to herself.

A tear from her left eye, quietly and apologetically flowed down her cheek.

And yes, why do we like this song from F/N so much? It’s just like that tear down “Rebecca’s” face.

It’s cool, understanding, epic in its own microcosmic universe, and it gets us nodding and tapping.

Who knows.

Obviously we dig this song from early 2017 – which was from their “Dépaysement” debut album.

Kudos, F/N. Kudos.

We think you should dig them too.
