Name: Andy Burrows
Track name: Keep On Moving On
Home town: Winchester
Who? Once he was called the drummer in Razorlight, then he was called I Am Arrows, then it was the new drummer in We Are Scientist. Now he's simply Andy Burrows (though he is still drumming for the New Yorkers).
Like these? Then try this: Ryan Adams, Badly Drawn Boy, Elliott Smith
Why now? "'Keep on moving on' is a tune I wrote whilst working on a project with Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt last year," says Burrows who is releasing the song as a single on XX. "Mark helped me write a few bits. Since then that project has been put on the back burner, but I really love this tune, so decided to re-work it and put it on my record. It seemed to me to be the perfect introduction to my own solo venture. Big fat drums, acoustic guitars, Rhodes piano and [We Are Scientists'] Keith Murray playing a mean-metal guitar solo..."
Sounds like: Drinking red wine on a sunny day. Glorious, yet there's a dark undertone.
