Sorcha Richardson shares her new single ‘Archie’ | News
Irish songwriter Sorcha Richardson shared their moving new single “Archie.”
The singer has a powerful yet subtle quality to her work, igniting the literary elements of her lyricism with dynamic performances.
Her upcoming second album is on the horizon, with Sorcha ready to share the first preview.
A patient and penetrating work, ‘Archie’ is a moving return, a character study that taps into her teenage dreams.
“Archie” also provides Sorcha Richardson with another alluring hook: “Don’t Disappear…”
“Archie” is a song about teenage hopes and dreams and losing touch with the people you shared them with. I wrote the first version of it during a writing camp in the spring of 2021 with some of my favorite Irish songwriters. It was the one song from camp that I kept coming back to, but I would have left it off the album if not for the influence of Alex Casnoff. He was a real guide with this one.
We recorded it at The Clinic in Dublin with my band mates Joe Furlong, Cian Hanley and Jake Curran and it quickly became my favorite song to play live. As lame as it sounds, it makes me feel like I’m living my teenage dreams when playing it. I think that’s one of the greatest feelings you can have.
Find Sorcha Richardson alongside James Vincent McMorrow at the Barbican in London on May 26.
