Line Up

Foreign Affairs is the musical collaboration of brothers Adam and Lawrence Purnell. The duo began writing together in their early teens before Adam relocated to Brussels for his Guitar Studies. The move did not halt their progress, instead providing them their name ͞Foreign Affairs͟, writing sessions via Skype followed and the duo͛s sound was born. On return to the U.K. the duo released their first single ͚Sell my soul͛ which received both local and national BBC radio play. They were subsequently invited to play Glastonbury Festival along with several prestigious support tours with Margo Price, Frankie Ballard and Striking Matches. This year will mark the release of Foreign Affairs͛ new record ͚The Old Fire Station͛ 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.
