HEADLINE LONDON’S SCALA
APRIL 29TH
&
 SHARE VIDEO FOR ‘BOOM’

X Ambassadors are coming to the UK next month to play a headline show at London’s Scala on April 29th. It will be the award-winning trio’s only UK show forming part of their European run in May.

Having started the year off by releasing their funky, indie pop-rock banger ‘BOOM’, they’ve now shared the yellow and black soaked video, which was directed by award-winning filmmaker and actor Tess Elliot.

Co-written by the band and produced by Ricky Reed (Twenty One Pilots, Leon Bridges), ‘BOOM’  is a song about recovery and personal revolutions. As it’s beat rocks, personal demons and toxic relationships recede in the rearview mirror and the accompanying video depicts this strong message.

The artwork for the track is written in Braille and designed in a yellow-on-black colourway. For Casey Harris, the band’s keyboardist and Sam Harris’ brother, who was born blind, it is the first physical manifestation of his work that he has been able to experience visually and is creatively re-interpreted in the video with the use of lights.

Having clocked-up over 4.3 million streams on Spotify, ‘BOOM’ is a popping, lyrically resilient track and an exciting taster of what to expect from their upcoming album due later this year.

The eagerly anticipated second installment is the follow-up to the 2015 gold-certified, breakthrough album VHS, which spawned the multi-platinum selling singles ‘Renegades’ and ‘Unsteady’ and led the band into the mainstream consciousness and a global touring frenzy.

The band have collaborated with a number of top name artists from Imagine Dragons, Tom Morello, Eminem, Jamie N Commons, Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa to the likes of Machine Gun Kelly last year on the track ‘Home’ ft. Bebe Rexha.

Formed of brothers Sam and Casey Harris alongside drummer Adam Levin, X Ambassadors’ superb live performances took UK audiences by storm and in 2017 appeared at Reading and Leeds festivals performing to a pack-out crowd on the Radio 1/NME before selling out their headline show at London’s ULU. Last year they returned to London’s Brixton Electric during their massive three-month voyage across the US and Europe and are thrilled to be back in the city next month for another incredible show at the Scala.

Renowned for delivering huge, hook-laden pop hits shaped by Sam’s exceptional vocal and songwriting skills and the band’s flawless instrumentation, the new album will see an evolution of X Ambassadors sound designed for 2019 and beyond.

SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE
‘HUNG UP’

UK HEADLINE TOUR IN APRIL

“A serious talent” – Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1)
“This is great” – John Kennedy (Radio X)
“His work has a sparkling melodic touch” – Clash Magazine

Archie Faulks has shared the video for his new single, ‘Hung Up’, following the announcement of his first headline tour this April.

The video premiered with CelebMix who said, “He has become renowned for his ability to plough a unique pop sound into his captivating song-writing and this is no different with ‘Hung Up’ – we absolutely love the track! The music video for the single mirrors the nature of the track, with its infectiously catchy and upbeat and up-tempo beat throughout, in both the track and music video. The video has a relatively chilled, relaxed nature to it, depicting ‘the making of a music video’, with Archie’s personality shining through in the video.”

The video sees Archie throwing himself into uninhibited exuberance, dancing through the buoyant melodies of the track and showing a brand new side of himself as a tongue-in-cheek pop star.“The video for ‘Hung Up’ was a fun idea me and Frederick Wilkinson had whilst on a photoshoot: a music video about the making of a music video,” says Archie “The video cuts between me trying to be cool, and failing, dancing in an over the top style while Fred tells the stage hands to play out his vision for the video, a ludicrous combination of balloons and capes. It was a hell of a lot of fun to shoot and edit hopefully it captured the fun essence of the song; while also depicting the ‘Hung Up’ side of it with me getting more and more pissed off/diva-ish as the video continues.”

‘Hung Up’ sees Archie deliver his brightest sound yet, channeling a pop sensibility into his enthralling songwriting. The new single follows the release of his debut single ‘It Rains’ and ‘Blackout’ in 2018. Both songs proved hits at radio with support coming from Radio 1 and Radio X, while they clocked up almost two million streams & counting across Apple Music & Spotify.

The songs are a taste of Archie’s forthcoming debut album which fans have been treated to a sneak preview of during his touring last year. Archie played his first shows in the US, toured Europe with Isaac Gracie and Rue Royale, and sold out his headline shows at London’s St Pancras Old Church & Servant Jazz Quarters.

He’s hitting the road again in April for his first ever headline tour and will play seven dates across the country, starting at The Jacaranda, Liverpool on April 13th, finishing at London’s Camden Assembly on April 23rd.

Archie has also been announced to play The Great Escape Festival & Live At Leeds festivals.
