Exclusive premiere of Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. remix of Kyle Andrews‘ “Heart U 4 Ever.” Check here to download the track. Kyle has extended his fall tour in support of his new album Robot Learn Love to include dates with Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Foster The People and Parachute Musical. All shows are listed below.
Despite its walls of electric guitars, raw synths and blasting drums, Robot Learn Love was conceived and recorded almost exclusively by Kyle himself. Robot is an exercise in duality: lo-fi vocals recorded through built-in laptop mics, others recorded through top-of-the-line studio preamps, drums simulated with software in the bedroom, and backing live string players tracked at pro recording studios. Half drowning in a swirl of stuttering synths, Andrews’ plaintive cry, "Why’s it got to be so complex?" at last gives way to a rest, a breath, only to be sucked back into the lush chaos. Throughout, Andrews balances the bombastic sonic textures with personality and warmth.
Genre seems to shift between dance, pop-rock and indie electro-pop more effortlessly than Andrews’ previous albums, and even when fully synthesized, feels more "live" and fierce than ever. Full band in tow, the live show exudes an energetic, rock ‘n roll vibe that is twice as loud as anything he has managed to capture in the studio until now. If Kyle Andrews is the robot who has learned to love, he has also learned to rock.
