While the world of pop music continues to explode in this part of the world, one voice is showing resilience in the pop ballad segment. Eora/Sydney-based musician Andrew Lambrou’s talent is unmistakably apropos in a pandemic world where distrust breeds.
‘Lemonade’, following the debut of Lambrou’s first single ‘Throne’, was released in early July (last month) and is a more reflective single about the bitter past, finding a person in life that comes from a similar situation and transforming the bitterness into something sweeter – just like the lemonade.
“Lemonade represents knowing that good is around the corner, and that the perfect person is out there for everyone,” said singer-songwriter Andrew Lambrou.
Produced by Dave Hammer (Lime Cordiale, Mia Rodriguez, Genesis Owus, Flowerkid) and Cyrus Villanueva,‘Lemonade’ features distorted and at times operatic harmonies layered over sparse punchy electronic production and a dark hard hitting bass line.
At first glance, Lambrou may seemed to be standing at the precipice of a new career in singing. And while joining the seventh season of Australia’s X Factor may just be the likeliest way to be uncovered and not exactly by chance, it was a voice well trained. Bringing to the pop ballad world, a much needed refreshment.
Today, the musician has already garnered a rather impressive fan base on social media, covering popular songs by Sam Smith, The Weeknd, and more.
With a publishing deal with Sony ATV Publishing, distribution by Believe and recent collaboration with RayRay from Taiwan, there’s definitely more to come. Nevertheless to say, undoubtedly a good start.
Andrew Lambrou is now signed with independent label City Pop Records, alongside Mia Rodriguez and Mason Watts.
