Singer-songwriter Andrew Krull has deep ties to Chicago’s indie and country scenes. Their understated vocal style, intricate instrumentation, and introspective lyrics highlight influences ranging from Elliott Smith and Nick Drake to Pinegrove and classic country artists. Krull has spent the last few years playing guitar in the math-rock band Parachute Day and with the alt-country artist David Quinn.
Andrew Krull’s 2021 EP, It All Goes, represents their debut as a solo songwriter, to which they supplied guitar, vocals, electric bass, banjo, and mandolin. They gathered additional contributions from an eclectic group of musicians, including Nick Levine of Pinegrove/Jodi, Seth Engel of Options, Chicago folk/bluegrass veterans Aaron Smith & Jess McIntosh, and Chicago indie folk singer-songwriter Alayne May. Krull’s songcraft balances catchy, layered melodies with evocative lyrics and poignant storytelling.
Written and recorded remotely over the span of a year amid the Covid-19 pandemic, It All Goes takes listeners on an introspective journey that delves into themes of trauma, gender fluidity, and self-acceptance. At various turns wistful and uplifting, the record bridges emo-tinged and alt-country aesthetics, featuring technically proficient songcraft and thoroughly listenable melodies.
