Francis of Delirium, the project led by Luxembourg-based artist Jana Bahrich, has released a new single, ‘First Touch’. Catherine Marks produced the track, which follows July’s ‘Real Love’. Listen to it below.
“‘First Touch’ was a bit of a departure from our usual approach of writing with heavy electric guitar and drums,” Bahrich explained in a statement. “Instead, Chris [Hewett] and I decided to start experimenting with acoustic guitar and drums. During that time, I started listening to a lot of Sheryl Crow’s music, particularly her song ‘Soak Up the Sun,’ which became a source of inspiration for the song. I wanted ‘First Touch’ to have a kind of ‘sun-rock’ vibe. The core of ‘First Touch’ is about looking back at love with a sense of nostalgia and idealism. I wanted to capture the youthful feeling of being completely consumed by someone and believing everything would work out, even if that is naive. But, I also wanted to emphasize the beauty of that sentiment, the hope and trust that come with really believing in the authenticity of love.”
