Foreign Affairs

(United Kingdom)


Gigs

Venue
Date / Time
10:30pm Thursday

Foreign Affairs is the musical collaboration of brothers Adam and Lawrence Purnell. The duo burst onto the scene in 2017 with a series of prestigious support tours with Margo Price, Aaron Watson, Frankie Ballard, Striking Matches and Morgan Evans. The tail end of 2018 saw the release of Foreign Affairs’ new record ‘The Old Fire Station’ which was recorded in their hometown of Bristol. The record is the culmination of their journey to date, the sounds, sights and experiences that the duo have shared. Drawing from influences such as The Lumineers, Johnny Cash and The Divine Comedy this record captures their raw Americana/Indie sound but also displays elements of their eclectic influences. The powerful and passionate vocal of younger brother Lawrence turns heads Instantly, but it is the carefully crafted songwriting that keeps them facing that way.
