Andain – You Once Told Me (Album Preview)

Posted by on August 22, 2012

11 years in the making, Andain the duo comprised of Josh Gabriel of Gabriel & Dresden and vocalist Mavie Marcos (guitarist David Penner left in 2006), are finally going to release their first album “You Once Told Me” after many singles, demo leaks and even breaking up for a year. Josh Gabriel & Mavie Marcos reformed Andain in 2007, but productivity in the form of releases never came until “Promises” was released in 2011 with the support of the larger DJ and dance music community. The release of “Turn Up The Sound” and the subsequent remixes showed that they were getting serious about releasing new material and the hope of an album was not just wishful thinking.

With the announcement of this 11 track album to be released September 24th, fans can celebrate and the final wave of anticipation can begin. The album mixes more club oriented tracks with acoustic ones to create a full body of work that shows the full spectrum of their sound. The album has a soothing quality to it with acoustic instruments and trancey synths creating a very airy, calming atmosphere. It also includes relatively upbeat moments during tracks like “Turn Up The Sound”, “Promises” and You Once Told Me”, but overall album is much more chilled out than Josh Gabriel’s work with Dave Dresden, showing the musical complexities of his persona. Stay tuned for more about this soon as there might just be a giveaway…
