Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow Releases Debut Solo Album ‘Descender’ Today
Andrew Wyatt, the front man of powerhouse electronic pop band Miike Snow, has released his first solo album, Descender, on Downtown Records and MapleMusic Recordings today. Descender is a 32-minute meditation into the darker side of the grammy-nominated artist. A mixture of whimsical chamber-pop and intricate soundscapes, the album’s sound is largely defined by the lush majesty of Prague’s 75-piece Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Adam Klemens. Featuring cameos from Anthony Rossomando of The Libertines, Brad Traux (formerly of Interpol) and John Herndon of Tortoise, Descender mixes sweeping string arrangements with Wyatt’s vulnerable, haunting vocals, marking the first time the acclaimed songwriter has written, orchestrated and produced an entire album completely on his own.
You can watch the Descender documentary directed by Sebastian Mlynarkski to take a deeper look into the unique album writing and recording process Here.
