Soul II Soul – OFFWORLD With Groovy Symphony ‘BURNT OUT STAR’ From Upcoming Album…

3 June 2020

RICHARD ARCHER, frontman of British angry rockers HARD-FI launched his new project called OFFWORLD with gripping soul voice Krysten Cummings last February with cutting, outspoken debut single Brave To Be Alive.

Here’s the second piece of the upcoming album. ‘BURNT OUT STAR’ continues OffWorld‘s crystal clear political vision on our messed-up world. Sonically, it’s a mighty funky groove but alternating, heartbroken vocals and agonized sentiments dominate this Soul II Soul like symphony, while a sizzling saxophone reflects a strange kind of feel of melancholic hope.

Archer spoke to NME about the track: “I can just remember coming downstairs and seeing that breaking news notification on my phone – first it was Brexit and then Trump. It felt like the bullshitters were getting away with it, and you’d see the upturn in people thinking they could say or do what they wanted. Suddenly, it was like, what happened to this country?

Feel the confusion right here…

HARD-FI Frontman RICHARD ARCHER Launched His New Project OFFWORLD…

New sonic impulses

18 March 2020

RICHARD ARCHER, frontman of British angry rockers HARD-FI just launched his
new project called OFFWORLD. Today the new act dropped its debut single and announced an EP for April and a full album later in the year.

Archer told NME: “We’re all really proud of the music we’ve made for OffWorld and
personally it’s been so cool to work with such talented musicians and awesome people.
We wrote and recorded these songs in a turbulent period of our history when the belief
that we were all moving forward took a hit, after reading too much science fiction we
ended up projecting our worries onto a different world.” “

Debut single ‘BRAVE TO BE ALIVE‘ described as “a fuzz bass hymn to the badass
warrior goddess/mother”
is a stormy rocker inspired by all brave women around
the world who stand up and fight against all sorts of discrimination of women.
