Tell us about yourself.

Started in Los Angeles in the early months of 2016, Shyla Buff has always been about re-creation. My name is Evan Andree, and I’m the man behind the musical mask of this project, and I’ve been writing and producing for other artists and projects for quite a while before Shyla Buff was ever conceptualized. Tiring of using tricks in the studio to help bolster writing I was looking for a way to do more using less.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.

Drawing inspiration from bands like Beach House and Beach Fossils, I set out on a mission: create a living and breathing musical atmosphere within an artificially limited landscape. Stripping down the process to just a handful of elements has allowed me to take on a unique personality. Simple threads are woven together to make a complex whole.

Tell us the reason you decided to go into music.

Growing up I couldn’t stay away from it. I’ve always created and always will.

Tell us about the story behind your song.

Drawing inspiration after a trip to the desert in Southern California, I set out to capture the experience in sound. Lyrically, the track explores the subtle insecurities of human relationships. I tend to get lost in my own head when it comes to analyzing how others relate to me. Sometimes you think other people are changing but later realize the only person acting differently is yourself. This song explores this often not so pretty mindset unapologetically.
