Archive’s Dave Pen reveals We Are Bodies

Archive vocalist Dave Pen has teamed up with French-based composer Robin Foster to create We Are Bodies, and they’ll launch their self-titled debut album next month.

In the meantime, they’ve released a video for their track Capsize, which illustrates their take on music in the vein of Radiohead, Talk Talk and Tears For Fears.

Their work is is described as a “a true reflection of modern society, narrating the numb monotony of living in the unconscious conformity of the 21st century.”

The duo previously worked together on Foster’s second album Where Do We Go From Here? and on the award-winning soundtrack to feature film Metro Manila.

We Are Bodies is released on April 6 digitally and April 27 physically via Membran Records. Pen appears with Archive at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on April 10. He’s also gearing up to launch In The Company Of Imaginary Friends, the third BirdPen album.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
