Welcome to BuzzMusic, Aaron Andreu. We're truly impressed with the vulnerable emotion and heart you've placed into your recent single, "The Loyalist." What inspired you to create this passionate piece?
Thank you. It’s a pretty personal song actually but I suppose in general it’s about surrendering to something that your head may not understand completely but that your soul feels and then not looking back.
Why did you want to cross over into English alternative and step outside of your Latin art-rock comfort zone? What inspired you to broaden your horizons with "The Loyalist"?
It wasn’t necessarily a conscious decision. Being bi-lingual and bi-cultural, my musical influences span both Spanish and English artists. So when I sit down and write it really is just a case of what language my emotions choose to be expressed in. This song chose English.
Was it challenging to open up and be so vulnerable when writing your heartfelt lyrics for "The Loyalist"? What was your songwriting process like?
It wasn’t really challenging at all. It’s kinda funny but I’m my most comfortable expressing myself through song. I’ll tell you I’m fine and then write a song about how I’m totally NOT fine, haha With “The Loyalist” it was a burning fire in my bones that just needed to be released. Things I needed to say but could only express with music.
What do you hope to make the listener feel with "The Loyalist"? What impact do you want the song to have on your audience?
With my music in general I want my listeners to feel like they’re not alone in their emotions, even the cringe-worthy feelings that are not “cool” to express these days. Hopefully, it gives them the courage to be vulnerable too.
What's next for you?
Well, I’m actually going to be pretty busy in 2022! I’m set to go back into the studio to record an English EP that I’ll be releasing in February, and then switch gears and get started on another project co-writing with certain Grammy Award Winning Artists that shall remain nameless for now haha it’s going to be an exciting year!
