Bio

Perth indie lords, Foreign Architects, return with their third drop of 2019, Money and Lies, set to be released on the 5th of July and celebrated by a free show at Settlers Tavern, Margaret River the same night.

Money and Lies has a singular feeling of guitar driven angsty lyrics, reminiscent of an Oasis style wall of sound combined with the anthemic pop choruses that have been associated with Foreign Architects over the years.

The track itself is simple, effective and highly relatable;

There's a certain slackness and comfortableness that we feel when we play the song, there's no pretence or
fancy production tricks, its feeling an angst and disillusionment with the world, but one that we can sit with. - Matt Burke

The release of Money and Lies marks the beginning of a string of shows for the Perth 4-piece with a brand new live show and surprise guests to boot.

Killer, got all the sway and catchiness I want on my Tuesday morning. I think it's just great.

It's so cool to see how nicely this project is coming along for Matt & Andrew. These last 2 uploads have been a huge step up and I think this expansion to a 4 piece has really paid off. Keep it up guys, super stoked for ya'll.
