A four song collection that gently caresses the eardrums with a timelessly, moorish, alluring ambience, Archie Faulks has just released his new ‘Longing In London’ EP. Recorded with Eliot James (Two Door Cinema Club, Noah And the Whale), his previous singles have collected over 10 million streams,and with this new EP he could well be about to receive millions more.
Opening with current single ‘What For’ (the video for which features a guest appearance from Isaac Gracie), as the EP title might suggest, ‘Longing in London’ deals with the range of feelings and mental anguished caused by the end of a relationship.
While ‘Gold’ deals with the struggle to deal with a relationship actually being over, ‘Goodbye There City’ is about Archie taking some time out and digesting what has happened, and ‘Foreign Kiss’ is the optimistic look forward (as Archie himself explains “This song is the moment where that feeling changes- the nervous and exciting time of meeting someone new but not knowing what to do about it”).
If you’re a fan of singer-songwriters like Damian Rice or Luke Sital-Singh, Archie Faulks is an artist you should spend time discovering. His songwriting has a timeless elegance, and with a new decade starting, Archie Faulks is in prime position to be the next superstar of British songwriting.
