AM Dandy’s latest single “Golden Dew” is the kind of track which makes you wonder just how wrong our ranks of guitar heroes are. International fame doesn’t equate to talent, and AM Dandy prove it with their mesmerizingly intricate guitar licks.
Putting vocals over Alessandro Meynardi’s fretboard mastery would be an aural sin. It’s incredibly rare for a guitar-led instrumental soundscape to be so restoratively transfixing, but the alchemy was definitely present in Golden Dew.
Any fans of Hendrix and Steve Vai will definitely appreciate the work of the up and coming Italian guitarist and composer who is currently based in Boston USA. The experimental influences of Frank Zappa are also prevalent throughout the epic (I despise that word, but sometimes it’s the only one that works) soundscape.
