Foley, Ash Wallace and Gabe Everett, release vibrant new single ‘On The Rocks’ via Nettwerk. This follows the release of CROWD PLEASER, PT. 1, which is the first part of their debut album.
Here’s the blurb with details:
Foley describes ‘On The Rocks’, “’On The Rocks’ is a window into the darker side of social interactions and dependence on others. When self-doubt and social anxiety cloud your relationships and you’re forced to keep up appearances while weathering the storm inside.”
Written during an experimental session for their debut album, the track marks a distinct shift from Foley’s groove-based pop. The twisting and tense acoustic guitar layers of ‘On The Rocks’ mirror the warped thoughts throughout the lyrics, while the heavy and dissonant bassline keeps us right on the edge, like you’re about to lose composure.
The multi-instrumentalist team galvanizes with their forward-thinking sound. A singular organism in duo form, their boundary-pushing formula bears all the gleaming hooks, infectious rhythm patterns, and deft arrangements required for success.
Foley was nominated for Best Pop Act & Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2021 Aotearoa Music Awards and landed a prestigious Silver Scroll nomination. The duo also hit number two on the official NZ Hot 20 Chart and had a number one Independent song on NZ Radio. The pair have also graced the main stage at New Zealand’s most prominent festival, Rhythm & Vines, and have supported Tove Lo, Still Woozy, and Two Door Cinema Club. Recently, Foley joined iconic singer-songwriter, Remi Wolf, on the NZ leg of her tour. The duo also made their U.S. festival debut last month at SXSW.
They now have over 8 million streams worldwide, and recently released Crowd Pleaser, pt. 1, part one of their debut album.
