Architects Premieres New Song “when we were young” on BBC Radio 1
- British metalcore band Architects, consisting of Dan Searle (drums), Sam Carter (vocals), Alex "Ali" Dean (bass), Adam Christianson (rhythm guitar) and Josh Middleton (lead guitar), premiered a new song “when we were young” along with a music video on BBC Radio 1's Future Sounds with Clara Amfo.
The song is their first music since the 2021 UK number 1 album “For Those That Wish to Exist”.
It was written by Dan Searle, Sam Carter, Alex Dean, Adam Christianson and Josh Middleton. Produced by Jamie Whymark.
The accompanying video was directed by Dan Searle.
“when we were young is a song that recognises what is gained and what is lost as we get older,” Dan Searle said of the song. “as the world unfolds around us we can become overwhelmed by its endless complexity. when i was 20 I thought I had the whole thing sussed, today i'm pretty sure i'll never understand reality. we lose our innocence as we age, and although fatalism and cynicism can creep in, we also begin to shift our focus toward gratitude for existence and for those that we love.”
