Andi Kristins

In the case of the singer, songwriter, and electronic musician Andi Kristins, a New Yorker who’s from Reykjavik and who has lived in numerous countries and in various parts of the USA, the music (along with the videos, when she’s made them) is prone to transport the listener back to the first flush of synthesiser pop in the early eighties; yet there’s something jittery – or marching-⁠band like – or on “the edge of . . .” in her arrangements and vocals that positively exhales 2012 and recalls us to the brute fact: all that transpired thirty years ago!

The march of time notwithstanding, her songs are catchy and her lyrics have depth – and she’s only just begun.
