ANDY SHAUF – ” Satan / Jacob Rose “

Posted: February 17, 2023 in MUSIC

On his new studio album Norm“, Andy Shauf’s song writing veers decidedly more oblique, hinting at sinister happenings and dark motivations. The result: an intoxicating collection of mellifluous melodies and beguiling lyrics. Levitating, synth-laden atmospherics drive Shauf’s storytelling on “Norm”, mixed by Neal Pogue (Tyler, the Creator). In 2016, “The Party” catapulted Andy Shauf to indie notoriety, followed by 2020’s “The Neon Skyline” which landed Andy Shauf performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 

It will be Shauf’s eighth LP overall and first since 2021’s “Wilds”. According to Shauf, the album is centred around the titular character of Norm, who was inspired by David Lynch’s film. “The character of Norm is introduced in a really nice way,” Shauf says of the first round of preview singles. “But the closer you pay attention to the record, the more you’re going to realise that it’s sinister.” Shauf’s status as one of indie’s greatest songwriters was solidified with 2020’s “The Neon Skyline”

Released February 7th, 2022
