With his latest single “Where Does All the Plastic Go?” Steve Andrews poignantly points out one of the greatest ironies ever. “Plastic plants, what about real plants?”. I’m dumbfounded that I’m dumbfounded. But he’s right. And that’s why I (and everyone should) make plenty of time for the artists who are compelled to use their talent to create a positive impact on the world.
Expect plenty of deep reverberance in the tonality of acoustic instrumentals in Steve Andrew’s latest single yet there’s also plenty of texture thanks to the jangly Folk Rock guitar progressions. With a vocal reminiscence to the likes of Neil Young, it’s really no surprise the eccentric performer hasn’t failed to amass plenty of attention for his upbeat eye-opening soundscapes during the course of his career.
The fact that Simon Cowell once snubbed Steve Andrews tells you all that you need to know about the distinction and charisma behind his sound. Where Does All the Plastic Go? may open your eyes to the planet going to pot around us, yet there isn’t a hint of existentialism found within the single.
You can check out Steve Andrews’ latest release Where Does All the Plastic Go? for Yourselves by heading over to Reverb Nation.
Or, you can head over to Bandcamp and grab yourself a copy of their latest album “Songs of Now and Then” on CD – and the cases plastic free. Consider me well and truly enamoured by Steve Andrews as a human. No wonder Nicky Wire once gave him a rave review in NME!
