The Neon Skyline


Artist: Andy Shauf
Label: ANTI-
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 24 January 2020

Anti- release the latest album from Andy Shauf, The Neon Skyline. Here the Toronto-based, Saskatchewan-raised musician's songs unfold like short fiction: densely layered with colourful characters and a rich emotion depth...

Andy Shauf (The Bearer of Bad News, The Party) delivers yet another album of sweet, laidback songs that will transport you back to simpler times. For this latest offering, the 11 songs follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighbourhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up.

While it doesn't really matter if you follow the narrative or now, it's interesting to learn that there is a story here. It's another rich and well constructed album that certainly won't disappoint Shauf's fans.
