“Windows in the Sky” is the first solo album from Alex Henry Foster, lead singer and songwriter for the Juno Awards nominee post-rock band Your Favorite Enemies.
Windows in the Sky is an intimate poetry essay about finding peace, faith and hope through the context of grief, depression, and distress. It is the first project to be released within a new partnership venture established between his label Hopeful Tragedy Records and Sony Music Entertainment / The Orchard and ended up being #3 in the Canadian Billboard Charts on the first week of its release, right behind Muse and Imagine Dragons, also reaching #1 for several weeks after selling more than 15 000 albums.
"Windows in the Sky is a subtle affaire, yet surprisingly vigorous, a blend of nervous tracks filled with the spoken, introspective poetry that characterizes Foster who irradiates an orchestrated madness while cultivating the ambiguity of his murky personality. He is a master at rattling brains with his mix of clear and saturated sounds.”
