Rooted in club culture but always eager to expand, Andrew Bayer truly comes into his own as an albums artist.
Embracing the breadth of a full length project, he's able to couple underground sounds with a much larger, more rounded viewpoint.
New album 'In My Last Life' drives the point home across eight tracks, a lush, lucid affair with nuanced emotional counterpoints.
New song 'Open End Resource' is a case in point, with Andrew Bayer working alongside vocalist Alison May.
Inspired by a camping trip and questions of identity, it's a means of communicating hope, of embracing the positive changes within society.
Alison May explains...
This was written a few days after I returned from a climbing trip, where I spent a few late nights talking to some fellow queers about the weight of questioning your identity. The conversations lifted a weight, but I had some lingering thoughts about it as I went into a writing session with Andrew.
The lyrics flowed easily as we had so much personal experience to pull from. We tried to write a song that would communicate hope to younger folks who are also facing those questions.
Tune in now.
