Andrew Wyatt, frontman of the indiepop band Miike Snow, explores his classical side in his debut solo album, Descender. Written, orchestrated and produced entirely by Wyatt, Descender features a 75-piece philharmonic orchestra as well as cameos from Anthony Rossomando of the Libertines, Brad Truax formerly of Interpol and John Herndon of Tortoise.
Here you can get an exclusive listen to the first single, "And Septimus..." It reveals an interesting, less electropop side to Wyatt than the one shown in Miike Snow. You can get a look into Wyatt's process in a documentary on the making of Descender that is set to premiere with the Creators Project this March, and Descender will be released on April 16th.
