Dublin's Sorcha Richardson has created a song that defies your typical expectations. "Archie" starts off as a fairly standard mainstream folky, singer/songwriter style song. Even if it stayed with that sound all the way through, it would be a terrific song I'd be thrilled to tell you all about. But, slowly the song morphs into this epic pop and alt-rock song. It has elements of folk still lingering, but also some more electronic pop sounds and even a little shoegaze poking around. It's an interesting sound that reveals more and more to a listener upon multiple listens.
"We recorded it at The Clinic in Dublin with my band mates Joe Furlong, Cian Hanley and Jake Curran and it’s quickly become my favourite song to play live. As lame as it sounds, It makes me feel like I’m living out my teenage dreams when we play it. I think that’s one of the greatest feelings you can have."
