Irish singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson has returned with the first single from a forthcoming second album.
“’Archie’ is a song about teenage hopes and dreams and about losing touch with the people who you once shared them with,” explains Sorcha. “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.
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. 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.”

It takes as much from the healing powers of time and reflection as it does from the starry-eyed heat of the moment.
She’s sharing new single ‘Shark Eyes’ too.
“Sometimes life’s biggest changes occur through a series of very small and intimate moments. This is a song about joining the dots between them.”
Sorcha scores heaps of charm and charisma on this full-length debut.
