Richard Archer’s Soap Share Debut ‘Golden Days’ Single


Soap – the latest project from Hard-Fi’s Richard Archer – have unveiled their debut track ‘Golden Days‘ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.

In-between writing and producing young artists (Ratboy/Redfaces/Ady Suleiman), Archer came up with the track which is inspired by recent events in the news – an ode to those who want to go back to a past that never existed.

For Soap, Archer roped in friends Dale Davis (Amy Winehouse) on bass and Smiley Bernard (Joe Strummer/Archive) on drums. Pleased with the results he decided to get the track out into the wider world.

The track also has its own video, which is a homage to the videos of the late 70’s/early 80’s (think Costello/Squeeze/Blockheads).

Archer achieved chart success with Hard-Fi singles ‘Hard to Beat‘, ‘Living for the Weekend‘ and ‘Cash Machine‘, whilst the band’s debut album ‘Stars of CCTV‘ (2005) reached number 1 on the UK album chart and was nominated for the Mercury Prize and two Brit Awards (Best British Group and Best British Rock Act). The follow up, ‘Once Upon a Time in the West‘ (2007), also reached number 1.
