Two Inch Astronaut are sharing "Andy's Progress Report," the third single from their upcoming album, Personal Life. An incredible song in its own right, "Andy's Progress Report" marks an extra exciting moment in the band’s constant progression as the first Two Inch Astronaut song to feature the band’s new bassist Andy Chervenak (of the mostly defunct Grass Is Green) on lead vocals and gorgeous cello accompaniment from drummer Matt Gatwood.
The record, produced by none other than J. Robbins, finds Two Inch Astronaut expanding on their sound in directions both poppier and more abrasive. The slow winding bliss of “Andy’s Progress Report” offers a welcome change of texture, building an enormous crescendo and further pushing the Two Inch Astronaut envelope into new “spacier” territory reminiscent of Pinback or Failure at their loosest. Speaking about the song, Rosenberg shared:
"Andy sings this song in its entirety, and it features a healthy amount of cello. Matt and I think it is the coolest and most different thing we’ve done. The title is sort of a sendup of the song titles on Grass is Green’s (Andy’s other band) Ronson album, although Andy does deal with actual progress reports at work."
Due out on February 5th via Exploding In Sound Records, Noisey shared "Andy's Progress Report" noting the single's "cello-fueled, slow building and knotty sprawl" and calling the album "a rager for riff-centric brainiacs."
