Posted by on May 7, 2021

Closely following on from the success of his prior singles ‘Talking to Myself’, ‘Medusa’ and the latest video game fuelled ‘Shadow Love’, Andreww emerges with his newest drop to date on “Crossroads”. Andreww delivers retrospective, storyteller-style lyricism over dark yet dreamy grunge guitars and fierce 808 beats that blend in seamlessly with Andreww’s unmistakable voice, which gradually lures listeners into a bold and powerful, rock n’ roll hook. The hybrid concoction of sounds is a breath of fresh air compared to a lot of music coming out right now, and the visual to go along with it is also very rad. With an eclectic taste in both music and fashion, stemming from his background as an international runway and fashion model, strutting for the likes of Louis Vuitton, Versace and Dior. Andreww is known for his vehement refusal to be tied down by any one genre, Andreww’s music is a rich and complex tapestry of seemingly mismatched sounds and genres which come together to create a unique and dynamic soundscape, and “Crossroads” is no exception. Check out the new single by Andreww above now!

“I wrote waves at the end of eighth grade, when I started to realize that everything was changing. I had recently switched schools, and I was about to start high school. I had this overwhelming feeling of realizing that I wasn’t a kid anymore. Instead, my life was now plagued with worry about tests and relationships and things that, in the long run, don’t really matter. Waves was a moment of realization for me- I was growing up. My life was no longer focused on fun and fairytales, and I was nostalgic for a simpler, easier time. Waves captures a feeling of nostalgia and pain, wishing you would’ve cherished simplistic times when they existed and wondering how you ended up where you are.” – Gillian Heidi

Posted by on April 29, 2021

In 2020, singer-songwriter Cristina Soto revisited her breakout hit with electronic power-duo Tritonal, “Still With Me,” and her Illenium and Said The Sky collaboration, “Painted White,” with acoustic mixes. As Soto’s hit classic with Tritonal, “Lifted,” approaches its tenth birthday this year, she continues her hot streak by returning with a new acoustic rendering. The indie / acoustic infused take on the original is a very different vibe but I am still really into it. The mellow soundscape is blissful and feels like a sunny afternoon in Spring, and as I write this it’s exactly that so it’s a perfect fit. Enjoy it now above!
