“This record has taken me somewhere else. That’s kind of the spooky element of making albums: you think you’re making them but really they're making and shaping you.”
Being inspired by a seperation, Finn Andrews took time out from his band The Veils and returned to New Zealand to work through his personal songbook – lyrics and sketches written into his daily journal. He galvanised a group of Auckland musicians and arrives with a very intimate and searching solo album with his voice lighting the pathway through.
Previously having released five hugely successful albums with The Veils, they also appeared in David Lynch’s reboot of Twin Peaks. He was recently commissioned by the Belgian government to write a piece for the antipodean dead of World War One.
For his latest work, he returns to the piano – an instrument he learnt from his father, the infamous XTC keyboardist Barry Andrews. He performs this gig with a band and string players.
