London based-singer songwriter Archie Faulks, much hyped by the likes of John Kennedy on Radio X and Phil Taggart on BBC Radio 1, has just released a single ‘Foreign Kiss’.
With over 2 million streams across his previous singles, radio plays from BBC Radio 1 and Radio X, appearances at The Great Escape Festival and Live At Leeds, plus shows alongside Isaac Gracie, Rue Royal, Luke Sital-Singh and Delilah Montagu, ‘Foreign Kiss’ will appear on the ‘Longing in London’ EP (set for release on Febryary 14th 2020).
With a delicately moorish ambience that gently pulls you closer and closer, ‘Foreign Kiss’ deal with the end of a relationship. ‘After the fall out of a passionate relationship it’s easy to think that you’ll never find anyone you will care for as much as your ex” Archie 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. In this case falling for someone living under the same roof. Both people self medicating over the loss of a previous relationship but doing so together- uncertain about where they stand and, in my case, fearful of making there feelings clear. Hence writing a song about it.”
