UNDER THE RADAR: Foreign Architects – “Poisonous Pill”
Perth Western Australia duo, comprising singer-songwriter Matt Burke and his percussionist cousin Andrew Barnett, Foreign Architects’ style is an infectious blend of indie pop, with an alternative twist. ‘Poisonous Pill’ has a psychedelic sound, and shows their diverse creative influences.
The song is accompanied by a video shot along the Perth shoreline, which has been bleached out in such a way as to convey the long hotsummers of Western Australia. It’s harsh and bright, and adds to the 60s feel of the song, albeit in a modern setting.
