Andy Watts is a veteran of the music world having written music for radio and television as well as providing drums and vocals for platinum selling group The Seahorses.
On this EP, Fragments of Bone he brings his own ideas to a wonderfully seductive and vintage sound that brings a well-polished singer songwriter finish with a unique beautiful acoustic touch.
Opening track Museum of Love rises from a basic verse to a delicate percussion chorus, enough for anyone to sing a long to with tambourines a plenty. A brilliant opening track that sets the fire for 60’s Beatles touch much like third track Bag of White Feathers for its well-polished classic band feel.
We move into Seaweed Hair, a calmer, more ethereal sound with stripped back vocals from his gorgeous raspy voice and providing images of mermaids floating adrift in the vast, mysterious underworld of the ocean.
Finally passionate Andalucia is a vibrant, erotic soulful finish to this innovative album as a Spanish touch gives this love song fire in the belly to click your heels to and tango with your loved one.
Favourite Track: Throw Me for its beautiful Spanish guitar plucking and harmonic vocals, but it’s a hard choice as all five tracks are splendid, different to each other and well executed.
