Praised as "a serious talent" by BBC Radio 1's Phil Taggart, Archie Faulks began touring and releasing music as 'Tenterhook' in 2014 before re-emerging under his own name in 2018 with a braver and more honest sound 🎵

Speaking about the transition from Tenterhook to Archie Faulks, the London based singer-songwriter said "I first started releasing music when I was 18, with hindsight perhaps it was a little too soon and I wasn’t happy with the trajectory I was heading in both artistically and mentally. I’ve been writing all the new material on my own, trying to create an honest and heartfelt record to both laugh and cry to. I felt like going under my own name so that I no longer had a barrier to hide behind, it’s forced me to face my own truths and make some difficult life choices which has hopefully made me a better songwriter and person.”

Archie's catchy pop melodies have already caught the attention of Clash Magazine, BBC Radio 1, Radio X and BBC 6 Music as well as racking up nearly 30,000 monthly listeners on Spotify 🙌

Currently he's is gearing up for the release of his debut album this summer, on which he's working with producer Eliot James (Noah & The Whale, Two Door Cinema Club, Bloc Party). We cannot WAIT to hear it 😍


Archie recently released his brand new single 'Hung Up', a track about addressing the past and trying to rid yourself of anger, resentment or jealousy whilst looking forwards. Give it a spin below 👇
