Andrew Neil’s ‘Merry Go Round’ Is Reverberating Alt Rock with Real Soul

6 19 18 Andrew Neil.jpgAndrew Neil’s ‘Merry Go Round’ is intense, reverberating alt rock with a warm, soulful tone. Neil “started writing songs following a head injury in 2009.  His journey since then has been a long and bumpy road.” After spending some time in the military, Neil ended up in trouble with the law and was eventually hospitalized for his mental condition. This is where he wrote and began recording many of his songs – including this one. There’s an authenticity in his voice that can be matched by few. The atmosphere he creates with his vocal presence is bolstered by his patient, understated guitar work. There’s definitely something very bluesy about his music, but especially on this song, there’s a seemingly math rock and shoegaze imbued aesthetic. His riffs are reminiscent of bands like Polvo and Slowdive. This project means a lot to Andrew and his family. Make sure to take a look at his Pledge Music site. This is absolutely worth a listen.
