Andy Macintyre is Back With His EP Release – April 14th

You may remember the premiere of Andy Macintyre’s latest single, ‘Meloman’ at the beginning of this year, we covered it {here}. But now the curtain is ready to be pulled for the full EP to take center-stage. On April 14th, the six-track album, Melomania, will reveal the post-grunge meets bluesy singer’s virtue in a way that ‘Meloman’ did so well to tease at – and you should be excited.

Smooth sipping, his vocals are whiskey that slips down too easily but turns to sand as you swallow – grainy and stark.

Though it’s hard to choose, my favorite of the six is ‘Soul Survivor‘; this track speaks to me – Macintyre plays a coffee-stained angel, a purity shining through a bittersweet veil. A soft strumming of guitar fills the space between each line, a breathless conversation that almost brings a hazy tension – waking you from the relaxed comatose that his cloud-clearing vocals ease you into.

A benevolent voice that promises the World and opens doors you’d long forgotten, this EP will ease the harshness of the heat this summer. The Chicago-born Austin-based singer’s velvety vocals will welcome you into a warm embrace in the morning, tenderly hold you up during your day and its struggles, before offering a tranquillity in the night.

I cannot recommend this EP enough.


Andy Macintyre’s EP, “Melomania,” while be released on April 14, 2018 ​with the official EP release show that evening at Antone’s featuring performances by Van Wilks, Jacqui Walker and special surprise guests. Tickets can be purchased here.
