I like instrumental music a lot. It’s primarily what I listen to while reading or writing and for me what I frequently take away from music enjoyment is the variety of sounds, melodies, and rhythms.
Adreas Beats is musician who creates beautiful and whimsical nature inspired tunes strongly favoring flute, strings, piano, and some other accents like horns (I can’t quite identify it, trumpet and slide trombone maybe? UPDATE: I reached out to Andreas on Facebook to tell them how much I loved their music and they were kind enough to read my this post and they told me “…the hard to adentify sounds you described are a mash of trombone tuba and various other brass instruments :)” what a nice guy!) and drums. He has 2 albums out, though both are excellent I’m going to focus on his newer of the two Into the Woods.
Unfortunately this artist is still pretty small and doesn’t have very much of their music posted online anywhere except spotify. However if you do have spotify, both of his albums, Into the Woods and Vermland are available on there.
My top 3 favourite tracks off Into the Woods:
- The titular song “Into the Woods”
- “Positive” (not listed on his site under track listing but on Spotify)
- A-M K
I realize that this artist is a bit more effort to find than usual, I do try to make it easy, but please trust me when I say it is well worth finding Andreas Beats and having a listen.
UPDATE #2: Okay so as I mentioned in the above update, I reached out to Andreas and they read this piece and they are sending me an exclusive sneak peek demo they’re working on and agreed to an interview! Tune in next week Wednesday folks and be the one of those cool kids who gets to hear a bleeding fresh track first!
