FOREIGN AFFAIRS Stun On ROSANNA

It’s a Glorious Piece of Indie-Folk from the Rising Duo "At some point, everybody is or has been 'Rosanna'. You’re either helping or being helped, maybe both. The song is a battle between being vulnerable but also wanting to still be strong. We wanted to use a name and put an Identity behind the song instead of it being faceless and in a weird way, we felt it actually made it more relatable. We’re proud of the sound we’ve captured with ‘Rosanna’ and the way our production and writing has matured."

It’s a Glorious Piece of Indie-Folk from the Rising Duo

By Vee D

Cultivating gorgeous vocal harmonies and a beautifully affecting chord progression, UK duo Foreign Affairs have just returned with their stunning new single Rosanna. We don’t know at this point who Rosanna is or was, but she certainly struck a chord with brothers Lawrence and Adam Purnell enough to write one of the most beautiful Indie-Folk songs we’ve heard all year. 

It’s their commitment to their craft and undeniable songwriting talent that’s lead to support across BBC Radio 2 and BBC Introducing as well as regular slots with legendary broadcaster Bob Harris. Online they’ve picked up support from the likes of CLASH and have racked up over 400k streams on Spotify. 

The new single showcases a change in direction for the brothers’ sound and we’re all for it, speaking on the new single they state: “At some point, everybody is or has been Rosanna. You’re either helping or being helped, maybe both. The song is a battle between being vulnerable but also wanting to still be strong. We wanted to use a name and put an Identity behind the song instead of it being faceless and in a weird way, we felt it actually made it more relatable.
