VIDEO RELEASED

Archie Faulks has shared the video for his new single ‘Blackout.’

A succession of beautifully shot abstract clips, the video conveys a surreal dreamlike ambience that simultaneously straddles both the romantic and unnerving; an ethereal visual journey into the fantastic and unsettling mind-set of an individual plagued by lonely, obsessive desire.

The song premiered on the Radio 1 ‘Chillest Show’ with Jamz Supernova in for Phil Taggart. A strong supporter of Archie, Phil previously called him “a serious talent”.
‘Blackout’ follows the release of Archie’s debut single ‘It Rains’ earlier this year. The song received support from Radio 1 and Radio X and has clocked up almost a million streams across Apple Music & Spotify.

The release led Archie to sell out his debut headline show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, and also saw him taken out on European tours with Rue Royale where he played three shows in Holland & Isaac Gracie where he performed four dates in Germany. He has also just played his very first live dates in the US and played two sold out shows in New York last week.

Archie will be announcing further live performances soon.

Archie Faulks has released his released his brand new single ‘Blackout’. The song premiered on the Radio 1 ‘Chillest Show’ with Jamz Supernova in for Phil Taggart last night. A strong supporter of Archie, Phil previously called him, “a serious talent”.

‘Blackout’ is a beautiful ballad influenced by love, as Archie explains, “‘Blackout’ is a song for all the dreamers and fantasists out there – when falling in love seems almost a weekly occurrence (on the tube, brief exchange in the smoking area, dare I say it… Instagram) closing your eyes and ‘blacking out’ makes these fleeting fancies romantic and just a touch from reality.”

IMG_3737‘Blackout’ follows the release of Archie’s debut single ‘It Rains’ earlier this year. The song received support from Radio 1 and Radio X and has clocked up over 700,000 streams and counting across Apple Music & Spotify.

The release led Archie to sell out his debut headline show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, and also saw him taken out on European tours with Rue Royale where he played three shows in Holland & Isaac Gracie where he performed four dates in Germany.

Archie will be playing his next London headline show at St Pancras Old Church on November 12th. He has also just announced his first ever US show where he will play at Communion’s ‘Candle Light Sessions’ in New York on November 8th as he proves himself an enticing live draw on both sides of the Atlantic.

Hey there, music lovers!

I had the pleasure of listening to Saint Raymond’s EP before its release and became an instant fan. It was released on Friday, November 17 and I’m happy to be able to share it with you now!

The A Light That Blinds EP follows from the release of the acclaimed Nottingham singer’s Top 10 debut album Young Blood in 2015.

IMG_1057Saint Raymond released two songs from the EP ahead of release, including the upbeat indie pop anthem ‘We Are Fire’ and the seductive late night swagger of ‘Nightcrawling’.

The singles have been receiving great support from Radio 1, with Phil Taggart and Huw Stephens particularly big fans at the station. He has previously been ‘Hottest Record In The World’ and completed a Maida Vale session for Radio 1 too.

Saint Raymond has received great praise from the broadsheets and indie tastemakers. His feel-good indie anthems have captivated arenas and he’s also played with the likes of HAIM, Jake Bugg and Ed Sheeran.
