Drinks&Money is as decadent a song as its name might suggest. Its minimalist soundscape booms, crackles, and pops while enigmatic Brisbane musician, producer, and multi-media artist Andy Ward haunts us with his somber cooing. The glitchy, synth driven debut single is a startling display of talent, and it comes with a surreal music video now, too. The visuals, which utilize a unique low-poly visual style through a technical combination of live footage from various abandoned buildings in Brisbane, are a heady trip, just like the experimental electronic song itself. Though Drinks&Money is sparse skittering, it’s tensely gripping and tightly wound. It’s almost like a storm is about to break, or a string is about to snap. Andy Ward’s music pulls at the part of me that harbors great love for the likes of Son Lux, James Blake, and SOHN. For another taste of Andy Ward’s exceptional music, stream a preview of Screaming Feelings below. It’s obvious this brilliant musician pushes the boundaries of creativity both aurally and visually, and we’re eager for more of his spellbinding delivery.
