In his own words, Andy Hobson’s latest single, Waterfalls, is Coldplay meets Radiohead, but less stadium and more kitchen. Just as he captured the sheer expansive beauty of nature as it crumbles around us before pulling it against the intricacies and destructiveness of human tendencies, he succinctly articulated his meditatively uplifting sound, which carries artful gravitas in the ever-ascending melodies.
The choral vocals bring an almost otherworldly texture to the release which makes you wonder what Where Is My Mind would have sounded like if Pixies had a spiritual awakening before producing it.
The UK-based singer-songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist, and wildly successful meditation teacher’s name as a solo artist may be new to the airwaves. Yet, before making his solo debut, he drummed in a Parlophone-signed band that supported the Killers when they released their iconic hit, Mr Brightside.
When that chapter of his music career ended, he turned his talents toward production and songwriting, resulting in a collection of songs penned and demoed in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdowns. Our new favourite raconteur of compassionately-creative meditative bliss is currently collating his songs into his expectedly unmissable debut LP. We can’t wait to hear the curation.
