What can we say about our No.3 Pop Single Of 2017 other than that it took us on quite the trip in 2017. Business class, of course.
Yes, this track had landed on our radar in late 2016 as part of Client Liaison’s fabulous debut album ‘Diplomatic Immunity’, but it was graciously granted single status in 2017.
It was, of course, ‘A Foreign Affair’.
We love the fact that the Client Liaison boys aren’t afraid to think outside the box when it comes to their tracks.
‘A Foreign Affair’ was decidedly retro… from the ’80s SAW-eque production to the “c’mon, c’mon” in the closing moments to the nod to one of our iconic Australian brands past in the clip.
But it was the addition of Tina Arena (clever play by her and her team to say ‘yes’ to this) that brought it home.
The balance of the vocals was perfect and even saw the latter gracing the stage at Splendour In The Grass in the middle of the year.
There’s a lot of love here for Client Liaison and this ‘Foreign Affair’ was one we’d gladly indulge in time and time again.
