Andy Martin has a unique talent for turning earnest songwriting into hooky indie-rock anthems, and his latest track is no exception. Corduroy PR is excited to announce the self-release of his new single, I Don’t Wanna Go Out, on Wednesday November 22nd.
Fresh off the back of his debut album ‘Reverie’, released in August 2022, Andy Martin shows no signs of slowing down. Following his 11-date album tour of the East Coast, including packed shows at renowned venues such as The Black Bear Lodge, Solbar and The North Gong Hotel, Andy was eager to jump back into the studio with producer Aidan Hogg (G Flip, Holy Holy, Hope D). The two worked together to create the glistening sonic world that is I Don’t Wanna Go Out, at Brisbane’s iconic Plutonium Studios (Tame Impala, Hatchie, WAAX). The track was mastered by Brisbane luminary Brock Weston (BUGS, Eliza & The Delusionals, Beddy Rays), who placed the final touches on this indie-pop earworm.
“I wrote I Don’t Wanna Go Out back in February last year. Due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19, I began getting more and more socially anxious and I wrote this song around that central theme. I’m constantly stuck in my head and when I wrote this, I felt stuck in my house as well (but didn’t know what to do). I feel like some people will be able to relate to this one closely. It’s hooky, fun, and playful, and Aidan and Brock really brought this one to life!” says Andy of the track.
So far, 2023 has seen Andy support industry giants 10CC, Kingswood, Ash, and Good Lekker, taking his energetic live show to the famous stages of The Fortitude Music Hall, Stones Corner Festival, and The Zoo. With a knack for crafting catchy indie-pop tunes, it’s no wonder his debut album has already cracked over half a million streams on DSP’s. Andy
Martin truly has his finger on the pulse of the Australian indie music scene, and is not only one to watch, but one to jump on board with now, as his career continues to unfold in exciting new directions.
Channelling the youthful energy of The Wombats, the candour of Sam Fender and the warmth of Ball Park Music, I Don’t Wanna Go Out launches Andy’s music into a new era. Masterfully pairing his trademark sounds of hazy electric guitar and spirited synths with the addition of upbeat driving drums, Andy has crafted a social anxiety anthem that will live rent-free in your head and your heart.
