Andy Shauf’s 2016 album ‘The Party‘ was a really interesting singer-songwriter release featuring interconnecting songs and characters at the titular gathering. He returns with his new album ‘The Neon Skyline’ which will be released on January 24th via ANTI- with a European tour following in March and April 2020. Again it will feature interconnected songs, with ‘The Neon Skyline’ following a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighbourhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up.
‘Things I Do‘ examines how that relationship had come to breakdown – it’s a sorry tale of a series of bad choices, or at the least misplaced “good ideas“.
