REVIEW: Andreww - Medusa
From the catwalk to the stage, Andreww's talents know no bounds. Having walked and worked for major names such as Louis Vuitton, Dior, Versace, and Valentino, Andreww has dropped his latest offering, 'Medusa'. This new track comes after his debut release 'Talking To Myself' released last year that has already amassed over 88k views on YouTube.
Taking influence from a wide variety of musical styles, the genre-bending 'Medusa' is a perfect showpiece for the artistic capabilities that this emerging star possesses. Successfully marring together catchy pop melodies with grunge inspired guitar riffs and topping it off with subtle hip-hop beats, Andreww and producer Markus Ganter have expertly crafted this creatively complex track. By blending together aspects of all the areas of the industry that appeal to Andreww, they have managed to create a sound that is entirely idiosyncratic to him:
"I see the creation of a song like an isosceles triangle made of different influences, which shifts exactly as the song demands."
Echoing the diverse genre stylings of 'Medusa', Andreww intended this to serve as metaphor for the chaos and confusion often found within toxic relationships:
“As much as people didn’t want to look at Medusa they still did. It’s the same with toxic relationships. No matter how bad they are for you, you can’t help but stay in them. ‘Medusa’ is about these toxic relationships and all the two-faced feelings that come with them. The inner conflict also reflects in the music; clashing trap, grunge and pop against each other kind of shows that things that sometimes aren’t meant to together, still end up staying together.”
With a fresh and unique outlook on the creative experience, Andreww bares his soul on his new spellbinding single 'Medusa' through his deeply personal and highly relatable lyrics. Combining this with it's unique soundscape, 'Medusa' is set to be a captivating second single for this charismatic up-and-coming artist.
