Andrew Bayer releases the third single taken from his upcoming double album ‘Duality’, ‘Chaos’ with Run Rivers.
‘Chaos’ is the epitome of Andrew Bayer’s leftfield experimental side. Featuring UK singer-songwriter Run Rivers, who has previously worked with DJ Shadow and Tinlicker, ‘Chaos’ displays Andrew’s unique ability to craft entirely fresh-sounding music and continues where the previous single ‘Equal’ with Asbjørn left off.
Two musical threads weave through the collected works of Andrew Bayer. One thread gave us the downtempo masterclass of 2013’s ‘If It Were You We’d Never Leave’ and the brilliant ‘In My Last Life’ LP. The other thread produced arena-sized anthems like 2014’s ‘Once Lydian’, his epic ‘Super Human’ with Asbjørn, and the club remix project ‘In My Next Life’.
From the introspective to the explosive, these records are our community’s shared soundtrack: we’ve all got a favorite Andrew Bayer record. But they have come in so many forms and styles.
It leaves us asking the question, who exactly is Andrew Bayer? It’s a question he’s asked himself.
“Since day one, I have always struggled with how to present myself. I love making these experimental home-listening albums of electronica and indie sounds, but I also love DJing and making trance bangers. On my last album, I had to remix the album in full after it was released to make the worlds fit. This time around I wanted to capture all the breadth, depth, and tension within that duality under one single project” – Andrew Bayer
‘Duality’ brings these two creative threads together under one album for the first time since his debut album ‘It’s Artificial’.
Crafted over three years, Bayer is joined by an eclectic cast of collaborators old and new. ‘Duality’ pt. 1 explores Bayer’s passion for downtempo and indie-pop, while ‘Duality’ pt. 2 takes on his forward-thinking trance and progressive sound. Both are tied by Bayer’s unique vision, a shared sensibility, and the same group of collaborators. Today, you can hear a sample from each side: ‘Equal’ (with Asbjørn), and ‘Midnight’ (with Alison May).
‘Duality’ is the true follow-up to my first album ‘It’s Artificial’. It is by far my most raw and honest work, and I can’t wait to celebrate the album around the world with you all on tour” – Andrew Bayer
‘Duality’ pt. 1 lands on August 12, with pt. 2 following on October 28. Pre-order now via the Anjuna Music Store.
