Andy Shauf: Try Again

The pop auteur returns with a new single featuring a jaunty melody, smart lyrics, and gentle yet beguiling vocals.

Andy Shauf: Try Again

By Kerry Doole

Andy Shauf - Try Again (ANTI-) The internationally-renowned singer/songwriter has just announced that his next album, The Neon Skyline, will be released on Jan. 24.


This charming advance single has a jaunty melody neatly complemented by Shauf's gentle yet beguiling vocals, while the narrative depicts a romantic encounter with a few twists. Sample lyrics: "Somewhere between drunkenness and chivalry, I hold the door open and let her pass through."

A sweet animated video directed by Mizotte & Cabécou completes the package. In a press release, the directors explain that “rather than illustrating the storyline, we imagined our own offbeat tale like a parallel to the song.”

The release also notes that "The Neon Skyline’s interconnected songs, all written, performed, arranged and produced by Shauf, follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighbourhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up."

Polaris Prize-shortlisted Shauf is rightfully being recognised as a genuine pop auteur, and we are looking forward to hearing more.
