Andrew Mancilla conjures that heady mix of pheromones, cocktails, and infectious beats that envelope you in a dance club. His soulful falsetto leads the charge through a fantasyland. “Ultimately, my new record Subtractive Color, is about fun, love, and youthful excitement. It’s about taking a limited set of emotions and creating a broad spectrum of vividly intense ones. Thus, the title.”
A pre-fame Lady Gaga was a creative catalyst for Andrew. Despite showing promise early on as an adept multi-instrumentalist, versatile and competent on trumpet, baritone sax, piano, and guitar, he lacked focus and discipline. The pair casually worked together while attending NYU. “During college, I was floating, searching for what I wanted to do. She had her stuff together and it inspired me,” Andrew recalls.
The 10-track album bursts open with, “Rewire,” an intoxicating slice of sleek R&B. Other standouts include “It Wasn’t Me,” the silken slow-burn jam which, features upcoming hip-hop artist Decora whose vocals bring a vulnerability to the song’s engrossing narrative. “That is about the follies of young love—missteps in relationships that can poison them forever.” Andrew’s playfulness as a lyricist is in full swagger on “Tell Her” which he opens with the line: I ain’t her type/but I ain’t afraid/She’s asks for a light/ I gave her my name. “I Can’t Believe Her” is a retro-futuristic delight that hits that sweet spot between the Jackson 5 and Justin Timberlake.
Andrew is taking Subtractive Color on the road with select dates in the northeast and a performance at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.

An Original Musical Husband-Wife Duo, Meet LightBody Sound
LightBody Sound could easily become the best indie musical husband-wife duo of the year. It all started when they met on a balmy South Texas night, more specifically, at The Last Concert Cafe. What makes them special and original is that Elizabeth has a background as an opera singer, while Chris shines as a troubadour.
Certainly, it’s worth listening to their self-titled debut album. Nothing can compare with the amalgam of Pop, Folk, Rock, and Electronica sounds that take shape in this material. Although it may seem unbelievable, this interesting project started as a series of instrumentals recorded in 2015. Little by little, the 10 tracks were magically completed. On the one hand, their interaction offers dynamism, while on the other, the storytelling lyrics are synonymous with variety and fantasy. What else could you ask for? Press play below and get your own conclusions.

Creatively, MATD found inspiration in Lewis Carroll’s most popular novel, Alice In Wonderland. The Pop duo composed of Marcos Kuusjärvi and Veli Eronen pays tribute to Tim Burton and Johnny Depp who were key in the development of the 2010 fantasy movie. Hailing from Torremolinos, Spain, these artists started their musical journey in 2009 and they show no signs of stopping.
Produced by Fred Parra, this fresh tune entitled “Who The Fuck Is Alice” is a collaboration with singer Hana Muftic. Best of all, she lays her mesmerizing vocals over rolling hi-hats, pounding drums, and epic synths like never before. Moreover, the lyric video plays with listener’s imagination as it features hidden meanings that are magically intertwined with the fairy tale. Personally, I appreciate the level of originality behind MATD’s efforts. Winners do things differently and also they think outside the box. Definitely, their project meets all the requirements.
