New Zealand-based pop duo Foley share their new single, ‘Better Than Love.’ Th track serves as the final single from their forthcoming EP Vacation, due out March 15.
Grounded by mellow pop grooves and sickly sweet vocals, ‘Better Than Love’ is a dreamy exploration of the prospect of love versus the reality of love and the way we close off our emotions to protect from future heartbreak: “The thought of you is better than love.”
Foley is product of 20-somethings Ash Wallace and Gabriel Everett’s friendship. Honest to a fault, Foley have quickly picked up a fanbase of young like-minded listeners for their confessions of love, loss and learning. Their debut EP, ‘On My Conscience,’ was released in 2020 and saw huge success across commercial radio and streaming platforms, reaching the top ten of the New Zealand Album Charts. They rounded out the year with the release of singles ‘Rendezvous’ and ‘So Personal’ which, along ‘Better Than Love,’ serve as tasters of their upcoming EP.
In addition to their streaming success, Foley have graced New Zealand’s largest New Years festival Rhythm & Vines 3 times, most recently playing a main-stage slot on New Year’s Eve. The pair have also shared the stage with Two Door Cinema Club, Flight Facilities & Crooked Colours at indie fest Spring City, and opened for Drax Project on their NZ tour and Six60’s stadium show in Hamilton early in 2020.
Foley’ new single ‘Better Than Love’ is available now. Their sophmore EP Vacation is due out March 15.
