Based in Dublin, Ireland, Iain Andrew is a folk singer who lays bare his soul through his honest and candid songwriting. His approach blends folk and alternative rock with personal reflections and poetry, depicting the light and dark of the human experience. His latest single, ‘The Good Weather Was Supposed To Last Longer’ is a poignant ode to a decaying relationship. In his most expressive and impassioned work to date, Iain utilises heavy symbolism and metaphors to capture the listener, over a bed of driving, propulsive folk/rock instrumentation.
Though he’s been playing music since age 12, it wasn’t until 2019 that Iain found his voice with his debut EP ‘everything is waiting for you’, containing 2 lofi folk songs recorded on an old Tascam cassette porta-studio from the 80s. This was followed by ‘I can’t get hurt if I’m alone’, another lofi EP which garnered some modest success, with the title track reaching over 80,000 streams. In this earlier work, Iain took a DIY approach, recording alone in his Dublin city apartment to cassette tape.
With ‘The Good Weather Was Supposed To Last Longer’, however, long-time friend and audio engineer Peter Ashmore took the reins in Hellfire Studio, co-producing, engineering, and mixing, as well as playing drums.
‘The Good Weather Was Supposed To Last Longer’ comes out on all streaming platforms on May 16th.
