Release Date: Out Now
This is perhaps one of the most romance filled songs I have heard in a very long time but Archie Faulks manages to weave threads of sadness and regret throughout the romance just to keep this grounded and, well, English. ‘Wonderful’ is a gentle folky tale of modern love played out through awkward dates, texting and a sense of inevitable heartbreak. Faulks’ voice is made of pure chocolatey velvet to rival the likes of James Morrison or Noah Gundersen and with the sparse guitar notes sewn together with lush strings this is perfect in its simplicity. The video is like a montage from a Richard Curtis movie and this wouldn’t be out of place in a big budget soundtrack such is the polished nature of Archie Faulks’ delivery and effortless songwriting. Beautiful stuff.
