London-based multi-instrumentalist SANDS has released ‘Celebrate‘, the second single from his upcoming ‘SANDS‘ EP. We are again treated to an artist who draws on the full spectrum of pop, handling everything from placid melody to ferociously avant garde ideals with an indie edge.
SANDS says “Being a multi-instrumentalist, it was quite natural to kind of develop the idea of the arrangement at the same time as the songs flew, so I was eager to get in the studio and see how things came out. It was fun and exciting losing myself in the process of building the whole sound, as well making some room for experimenting and improvising. Sometimes is easier, other times it seems you have to struggle a bit.”.
SANDS‘ musical journey began at the age of 13, when he became obsessed by records and playing drums and guitar in bands. Later, recording and engineering entered into his field of interest and today he cites influences including Neil Young, The Smiths, David Bowie, Talk Talk and Stone Roses.
