A song that gently caresses the eardrums, with a moorish, alluring ambience … London based-singer songwriter Archie Faulks kicks off the new decade with his latest single ‘What For’.
With over 4 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, ‘What For’ will appear on the ‘Longing in London’ EP (set for release on February 14th 2020).
Talking about the inspiration behind the song, Archie explains “When everything feels hopeless in life there will always be certain things that can provide an element of comfort. I am lucky that singing, writing and listening to music gives me that. So this song is about despite it seeming like my world is was falling a part I still had a safe refuge in the history of recorded music and my own guitar”.
