Bittersweet melancholy with surges of haunting electricity.
Andy Mort is a singer-songwriter and ambient sound artist from the UK who blends dream pop with expansive instrumental soundscapes. His music explores the impact of space and time on socio-political life, art, and individualism.
It's inspired by fairytales, the life-breathing joy of imperfections, and the absurd state of things.
Raise a Glass is the third single from the forthcoming album, Home is No(w)here, which asks questions about alienation and belonging in a world of groundless acceleration and mindless productivity.
After six years as an undertaker, these questions gently haunt and infuse Andy's work as he questions the strange, beautiful, and terrible things humans do out of fear, love, and boredom.
Raise a glass is a quest of mind.
Judo with the black dog.
