Archie X – Karma Sucks

Only five months ago, Belgian duo Archie Xโ€™s maiden single Loud Boy made a big impression. On me, at least, and I launched my most powerful promotional weapon: I made it the Carte Blanche Music Wildcard. This means a song is highlighted on my blog for a whole week. And thenโ€ฆ nothing much happened, really. A bloody shame, I still think itโ€™s one of the strongest debuts in recent years.

But, one can also win a match in the second half. And Charline Dโ€™Hoore and Tom Lodewyckxโ€™ sophomore single Karma Sucks is another winner! Even though itโ€™s a totally different track than their first.

Karma Sucks is a dreamier affair. Its first part reminds me a bit of one of 2013โ€™s finest moments: Everything At Once by Lenka. Throughout the song, the production is ace. The combination of an acoustic piano with a subtle electronic beat and dosed vocal effects is accessible, but with an edge. People with ears on their head will put this on their (radio and streaming) playlists.

For those still in doubt: Archie X’s very first band repetition ever will be live streamed on their Facebook page, Saturday 6 February at noon. How about that for self-confidence?
