Put your finger on a map of downtown Nashville and you can feel the pulse of Andrew de Torres. The singer-songwriter forges ahead with a solo bow and new EP (‘Sprinter’) of conceptual, thoughtful and playfully-orchestrated indie-pop as KAPTAN. Here, the sonic template resonates with a notably happy shimmer, showcasing Andrew’s knack for melding emotionally direct lyrics with refined, nuanced compositions.
“My bass player (Brandon Day) and I wrote Jump together. We really just wanted to write a song about supporting the people that we love who may be going through their own obstacles, a song about togetherness, which has been kind of an ongoing theme for the bands music. We produced the track together (mostly him haha) in his little writers room, tried to pack it full of good vibes and then had our drummer (Kirk Ellis) re-track drums. The track really came together after having our good friend, Brandon Metcalf mix it and then handed it off to this amazing mastering engineer Dan Shike. We really couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out and just hope people enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
