INTERVIEW: Andro presents '360'



ANDRO creates music that works in all environments and transcends genres. His openness to a wide range of sounds is what has made him a widely loved favorite, but also someone who operates in his own parallel musical world. We had a chance to talk to him, so enjoy your reading and check out his latest releases from him.


How and when have you been interested in music? And electronic music?

Since I was 5 years old. I started dancing and choreographing, so my body was always connected to rhythm and sound and shapes. Can you tell us a little about your experience? Where are you from / how did you get into music?

I'm from Liverpool. Which has a very unique and strong musical scene and identity. But music has always been in my blood, having African heritage. I started my journey as a dancer, then slowly opened that up into music/singing and acting. I've always said I wanted to be a Pop Star. Nothing has changed since I was 5 years young. How is your sound evolving? What artists and genres do you enjoy mixing right now?

I'm finding new qualities and new sounds to play with and explore nearly everyday. I'm no longer afraid of allowing my body to respond to the music I produce. im enjoying Chloe & Halle, Yebba, Rina Sawayama and Chika. How do you feel that your music influences or impacts your listeners?

Those who can look past the surface of the song, will see the lyrics and the story as they listen to it. That's what will make an impact. What projects are you working on right now? What can you tell us about 360?

I'm currently working on my debut album and i'm also in the process of producing a screenplay. 360 is an uncomfortable, unrealistic, story of burning desire, for someone who meant alot to me but i couldn't give them what they wanted. My freedom was too important. There is also a sense of self-sabotage in the song, perhaps i'm also talking to a part of myself, rather than the person who was inlove with me at the time. Where are you and what have you been doing now?

Im at home, after being at the theatre. It was awful, but it was nice to be in that environment for a while. Right now, im writing answers to this interview! Has that sound changed a lot in recent years? What is your musical criteria?

My sound has always had an 80's Pop and rock element to it, but i dont like to put a label on how I create.

Do you feel safe now to play a more experimental sound?

Yes I do. I'm just going to make music that resonates with my body and my energy. People will pick up on that. We all know that the digital revolution has affected sales, but has it affected creativity?

I think in the more generic-sugar-pop world it has effected creativity. And made music a little more 1 dimensional. But perhaps thats a talent in its self. Can you tell us what your present and future projects are?


Currently working on my live show and debut album. I'll be crafting a world to take on tour in the future.
