Andy Shauf’s new album The Neon Skyline is out now on ANTI-. The interconnected songs were all written, performed, arranged and produced by Shauf, and follow a simple plot: the narrator goes to his neighborhood dive, finds out his ex is back in town, and she eventually shows up. It’s densely layered with an abundance of charming moments. His characters are all sympathetic here, people who share countless inside jokes, shots, and life-or-death musings when the night gets hazy.

Shauf recently released a new video for “Neon Skyline,” which was directed by Colin Medley and features Shauf in his studio in Toronto. “Over the course of the last few years I'd come by and take photos and listen to whatever new songs he'd been working on,” says Medley. “Sometimes we'd go to the Skyline, but quite often we'd never leave the studio, staying up all night turning each other on to different songs. At some point Andy put up a dartboard. I guess I just tried to capture those nights and pay tribute to Parkdale, the neighbourhood where we both live.”
