The beautiful ballad maintains a soft tone throughout, with an emphasis on the music and his fantastic vocals. To a certain extent, ‘Blackout’ has a stripped back nature and the lyrics are incredibly touching. Even though the track has a soft tone throughout, ‘Blackout’ has a catchy rhythm and will no doubt leave you wanting to listen to the track repeatedly, with the track truly showcasing his talent.
When speaking about the new single, Archie Faulks said the following:
“‘Blackout’ is a song for all the dreamers and fantasists out there – when falling in love seems almost a weekly occurrence (on the Tube, a brief exchange in the smoking area, dare I say it….Instagram) – closing your eyes and ‘blacking out’ makes these fleeting fancies romantic and just a touch from reality.’
‘Blackout’ follows his debut single ‘It Rains,’ which was released earlier this year. The track received radio support from several major radio stations and has, to date, received over 700,000 streams on Apple Music and Spotify.
