Archie Faulks has released the video for his brand new single, ‘Wonderful’.
A stunningly melancholic love song, the video, captures glimpses of burgeoning love in London’s contemporary dating scene – check it out below:
Archie said of the video: “When I listen to ‘Wonderful’ I think of falling in love in London. So it was important to me that the video was a love story set in London. The underground is a space where life above ground doesn’t really matter. We sit across from people and can gaze longingly at them falling in love for five minutes before they reach their stop. I have been victim to many of these underground infatuations. So I wanted the video to start on the train but this time, whether for real or in the imagination of the passengers, the relationship develops above ground. They live out the fantasy that we so often succumb to on the way to work.”
David the director had recently moved to London so had a very romantic vision of the city. A vision I had possessed as a kid but as time and experience wore on had slightly died. But London can always surprise you. David breathed new life into my romanticism of this great city with the video he created.”
‘Wonderful’ comes as the latest in a string of singles released from Archie, following on from ‘Hung Up’, ‘Blackout’ and ‘It Rains’.
They’re just a taste of what’s to come from Archie’s forthcoming debut album – teasers of which have been delivered on Archie’s seven-date UK headline tour, which ends at the Camden Assembly tonight (23rd April).
