Archie X – Fight Me

When Archie X released their debut single Loud Boy, 15 months ago, the pandemic was in full swing. Only ten months later, the Belgian duo were able to do their first ever live show. Core members Charline D’Hoore and Tom Lodewyckx didn’t only do so in a full band set-up, they even managed to play pop temple Ancienne Belgique. Quite honestly, the performance didn’t draw a full house. More precisely, due to the COVID-19 restrictions, there was no crowd at all. However, since the concert was livestreamed, many people enjoyed the gig from their homes. If you haven’t seen it already, the full show is here.

I was one of these viewers, and of the new tracks they played, Fight Me struck me in particular. Now, five months later, it’s Archie X’s new single. A track full of suspense, partly thanks to the sultry bass that’s become one of the band’s trademarks. An oriental-sounding synth melody adds to the atmosphere. The lack of a real climax only makes you want to hear it over and over again.
