Charley says ALBUM! Andes – Andes

July 28, 2010

I hadn’t really gotten round to doing a proper review of Andes’ debut album yet.

I have to admit that has to do with the fact that the album as a whole hasn’t quite managed to capture me the way ‘Vergeef Me‘ and ‘Een Dag Meer / One More Day‘ have.

Which isn’t to say that the Zo Is Er Maar Één alums’ eponymous album isn’t decent. How could an album containing ‘Vergeef Me‘ not be?

Plus, with Jeroen Swinnen on production duties and the likes of Stefaan Fernande and Nailpin singer Sean D’Hondt collaborating on the songwriting, there were some great musicians helping Andes a hand.

Besides the three singles, ‘Dit Is Anders‘ was independently released before the band signed to Universal, the album tracks just haven’t really clicked yet.

That is, except for one in particular.

Sinds Je Weg Bent‘ should surely be the next single? The hook “Sinds je weg bent, ben je overal” (“Since you’re gone, you’re everywhere”) is simple, but great. When the only comment I can think of is that the line “Woorden schieten soms te kort” (“Words fail me sometimes”) tends to make me want to listen to ‘Hou Me Vast‘ by Volumia, you know you’re onto a winner. ‘Sinds Je Weg Bent‘ is most definitely the one album track I keep going back to.

You can check out an acoustic rendition in the incorrectly titled YouTube video below!

Ok, I admit, that’s not ‘One More Day‘. You can listen to the actual new Andes single by clicking on the link below. I just thought I’d post the band’s major label debut ‘Vergeef Me‘ again, because

a) it’s a very good song.
b) it has a very pretty video.
c) lead singer Tomas looks very good in it.

This song was all over the radio here in Flanders and yet it only peaked at number 44. Let’s hope the fans they gained in talent show ‘Zo Is Er Maar Één‘ step it up a notch for the new bilingual single ‘One More Day‘, which features James Walsh of Starsailor.

In the category highly fanciable lead singers with shiny guitar pop songs we like way better than expected, here are ‘Zo Is Er Maar Één’ finalists Andes with their major label debut ‘Vergeef Me’.
