Richard Fairlie returns with a new electric-guitar led, high energy single, POISON, following the release of his debut 5-track EP, MAYBE I’M JUST A LITTLE BIT BROKEN, and early summer release, THE REASON I’M BREATHING. POISON explores a deteriorating relationship from both sides and the fall-out and self-destruction that ensues.
Says Richard: “I was inspired by a meeting with Omer Fedi, the guitarist and producer behind The Kid Laroi and Machine Gun Kelly at a Youngblood afterparty in LA – He kinda helped me revisit my Pop Punk days – and reminded me of that early visceral energy of Blink 182 and Linkin Park but also made me think of Iann Dior and how he pulls the genre into a more unique pop space with less real drums and more of a rock/trap feel. I also realised I wanted to get some faster tempo into my writing – in anticipation of playing live again. I really wanted something I could run around to on stage and be able to bring some real energy to the shows”.
Richard has an ever-growing and eclectic group of superfans, ranging from Gary Vee, an American entrepreneur and internet personality (who has played every track from Richard’s EP on his personal Spotify Playlist (MONDAY TO MONDAY) to Tyrone Mings, England international footballer and OFFICIAL 27th man Lion’s Den presenter: Josh Denzel – With the pair sharing Richard’s music on socials throughout England’s iconic euros campaign
