Dublin artist Sorcha Richardson has shared a video for her new single, “Archie.”
The new track is a coming-of-age tale that sees Richardson singing of friendship instead of love. Honing in on the nostalgic sounds of a teenage love song, Richardson takes a new direction, leaning into the beauty of platonic love. The accompanying video is a stunning, cinematic clip full of shots of a pair of friends hiking and fooling around on a mountain.
“‘Archie’ is a song about teenage hopes and dreams and about losing touch with the people who you once shared them with,” Sorcha Richardson explains. “I wrote the earliest version of it at a writing camp in the Spring of 2021 with some of my favourite Irish songwriters. It was the one song from the camp that I kept coming back to but I would have left it off the album if not for Alex Casnoff’s influence. He was a real guiding light with this one.”
Watch the video for “Archie” below.
“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,” Sorcha Richardson adds. “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.”
