UNDER THE RADAR: Foreign Architects – “Sometimes I Run”.

Foreign Architects, from Perth, Western Australia, formed in 2013, are Matt Burke and Andrew Barnett, singer-songwriter and drummer respectively.

Foreign Architects are just the latest in the great indie sounds coming out of Western Australia. ‘Sometimes I Run’ is an autobiographical song about knowing your own worth, and lyrically it explores the headspace, psyche, and contradictions that you know are illogical, but at first find easy to ignore.

‘Sometimes I Run’ was initially recorded at A Sharp recording studios, following a performance at the Oxford Art Factory, in Darlinghurst, Sydney. Tracking for the single was finished off at Matt and Andrew’s home studio, while the mastering was done by Andrew Edgson, at Sydney’s Studios 301.

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.
