Discovery: Pretty Archie

Pretty Archie are a Canadian country act based in Cape Breton. Drawing on influences ranging from bluegrass to folk, their sound is one that feels instantly recognisable and easy to fall in love with. Their latest track is called Reasons.

The track deals with the subject of breaking up, often covered in music but Pretty Archie’s storytelling style really brings the emotion and details to life. The soulful vocals in the chorus will have you singing along for sure.

Reasons is taken from the band’s sixth, self-titled album, produced with support from Bob Dylan, U2 and Peter Gabriel collaborator Mark Howard. The album is out now and you can check out the single below.
