Following on from the release of CROWD PLEASER singles ‘Smooth It Over’, ‘Killing Me Babe’ and ‘Nothing’; as well as their most recent single, ‘On The Rocks’, this new cut from Foley demands your attention from the jump.
‘Tongue’ wastes no time, pulling the listener into its rich and textured realm of pop sounds, bolstered by the addictive vocals of Ash Wallace. Between Wallace and bandmate Gabe Everett, the multi-instrumentalists and songwriters are the perfect creative partners.
Harnessing an innate ability to read each other’s energy and elevate each other on the track and in studio, Foley have conjured a creative formula that has turned them from buzz artists, into ones pop fans and industry are advised to keep a keen eye on as 2023 continues to roll out.
Described as a playful take on surface level relationships, ‘Tongue’ sees Foley team up with long-time collaborator Josh Fountain (BENEE, Ruel) to lay the track down during the recording of CROWD PLEASER – the band’s debut album, released in two halves.
“‘Tongue’ is a playful take on surface level relationships - where we love the idea of someone but can’t trust them when it comes down to it. You can’t put your finger on what doesn’t feel right, and you get caught up in the allure of the unknown,” says Foley.
Foley has just been revealed as Spotify’s EQUAL ambassador for May, timing well with the new single release. They are also excited to return to the home live touring scene, with shows in support of ‘Tongue’ and CROWD PLEASER - performing on Friday June 9 at Wellington’s Meow and Saturday June 10 at Auckland’s Galatos. The shows come hot off the back of performing at the SXSW music festival in Austin in March to rave reviews.
