Drew Andrews comes from The Album Leaf fame, assisting Jimmy LaValle with dreamy pop that sifts between instrumentals and soft vocal melodies. You can hear select traces of that influence in the music Drew Andrews creates solo, albeit less dreamy and filled with more folk sensibilities. “Suitcases, Bandages” capitalizes on these traits yet finds Andrews pulling influence from his other group for a sound that is entirely pleasant, leading one to proclaim his ability to craft a genre that can only be dubbed as dream folk.
“Suitcases, Bandages” is off Drew Andrews’ upcoming EP Playing Birthday Games, out soon on Minty Fresh Records. Don’t miss Drew as he hits the west coast in support of the new EP.
