“‘Dirt’ is about an apocalyptic hookup” says Loyal Lobos of her latest offering. Real name Andrea Silva, she was first inspired to start making music under the new name after her relationship with a Nashville man came to an end. Stripping away her previous synth-pop style, Andrea turned her pen towards crafting gorgeously raw and emotive folk songs and Loyal Lobos was born.
Dropping her debut track “The Fall” earlier this year, she describes her follow-up, “Dirt”, as “a song about toxic attractions. Chemicals fooling you and your instincts and for the moment it seems real and special but then it isn’t but you can’t help but surrender sometimes.” Full of delicate melodies and haunting vocals, the guitar-lead folk track is a strikingly moving and honest piece of songwriting.
The second track to be taken from her forthcoming EP, titled “The Fall”, it’s set to highlight Andrea’s incredible talent, as well as probably making a few of us cry in the process.
