Q: Awesome track! I love the way you blend grunge rock and pop in a seamless way that will attract a large audience. Can you take me through your writing and production process in creating “Crossroads”?
ANDREWW: There wasn’t really that much thought put into blending the genres at the time. It felt like the obvious thing to do. I had been listening to a lot of Robert Johnson whilst I was in the studio so the word “Crossroads” or the concept of standing at one was kind of premeditated.
Q: The cover art for this song was designed by the huge streetwear designer Verdy, which is awesome! What did you take away from this experience of working with him?
ANDREWW: Verdy is a really good friend and had said years before the song came out he wanted to do a cover. It was so easy working with him and it was pretty much the first thing he came up with. I’m very grateful for the cover.
Q: When and why did you start playing music?
ANDREWW: I remember how my dad used to listen to music and get really excited about songs he played me. Seeing that reaction as a kid must have sparked something in me and when I was old enough to listen to what I wanted to I became obsessed and listened to music more than I spoke to people in my teens.
Q: If you could go open a show for any artist who would it be?
ANDREWW: You’d probably get a different answer off me every day but today it would be Kid Cudi.
Q: If you were stranded on a desert island and could only take one song or album to listen to, what would it be?
ANDREWW: The self titled Bon Iver album.
Q: What do you want people to take away from listening to “Crossroads”?
ANDREWW: Sometimes you just have to make a decision and stick to it. Listen to your gut and everything will be fine. If it works out then great and if it doesn’t hone you’ve learnt something.
Q: I know you have a new single releasing soon. What can you tell me about the upcoming track?
ANDREWW: It’s definitely the most grunge infused song Ive done and will transport people back to 93.
