Foreign Affairs is the musical collaboration of brothers Adam and Lawrence Purnell.
In December of 2018 the band released their first EP The Old Fire Station.
The EP received widespread critical acclaim and was followed by a 22-date European tour with Grammy-nominated artist Larkin Poe.
The duo signed their first publishing deal to Peer Music in October 2019 and have released a host of new music which has garnered support and national radio play from BBC Radio 2 (Dermot O’Leary and Bob Harris) as well as several Spotify editorial playlists and TV placements.
Foreign Affairs have toured extensively, taking their enigmatic live show throughout the U.K
& Europe. The brothers have enjoyed several performances at the prestigious Glastonbury Festival as well as a run of sold out U.K. headline shows and festival appearances in France and Norway.
"Serving up a summer anthem filled with slick guitars and catchy lyrics is brother-duo Foreign Affairs with their new single “Make a Move”. Building upon their songwriting ability in the single, we see the duo deliver yet another hit single as they ride the rock ’n’ roll production, intertwining elements of old school blues with feverish energy.” - Wonderland Magazine
“Dynamic roots songwriting, their subtle Americana has won fans across the land, with their simple but strikingly melodic songwriting.” - CLASH
