Andy Shauf Debuts “The Worst In You”

Andy Shauf Debuts new single "The Worst In You".

Andy Shauf’s full-length The Party is due out May 20th. Today, he debuts the new single “The Worst In You,” which blends elements of Bert Jansch-like baroque folk with a highly melodic sixties pop. The Guardian recently called Shauf an “Indie Burt Bacharach” with the “appeal of the hippest mainstream 70s songwriters, up to and including Nilsson.”

Shauf says of the song, ” ‘The Worst in You’ came together really late in the recording of the album. I wrote it in about ten minutes while I was stuck on another song. It’s about a guy trying to find his girlfriend at a party, and about how easy it is to jump to negative conclusions.”

Early on Andy Shauf toured Western Canada playing DIY punk venues with just an acoustic guitar. In 2015 he gained attention with an album called The Bearer of Bad News, which he wrote and recorded in his parents’ basement.

Andy Shauf is currently touring Europe with The Lumineers and set to open for case/lang/veirs on their anticipated tour this June.
