KAPTAN TELLS US THE "HARDEST PART"

January 13, 2018

 

Kaptan (Andrew de Torres) is an indie pop musician based out of Nashville TN, and he is an artist that you should get to know by his new moniker. 

 

Andrew de Torres is best known for being lead vocalist of Danger Radio and The Scene Aesthetic. Combining experience and raw talent, Kaptan was born in 2015.

 

Releasing his first EP Sprinter and numerous singles, Kaptan is back with fresh new tunes.  Previously, his earlier single “Moving On" was featured on Spotify's New Music Friday, Indie All Stars, and Every Day Favorites just to name a few. More specifically we are absolutely loving his new single “Hardest Part.”

 

Kaptan opened up to NU and said that the song was an emotional and very difficult process compared to any project he has previously worked on.


"This particular song is much different than anything I’ve done for this project. I lost my mother a few years ago and wrote this song about that. It's definitely a little darker, sadder, but it's probably one of my favorite songs that I’ve ever written."

Brooklyn Semhar waxes melancholic and laments a family divided on “Daddy.” This track is a smouldering, slow-burning groove that pulls itself along with all the moodiness of its subject matter. It is arranged beautifully, and reflects a refreshing jazz influence in its...

Canadian singer-songwriter Kiesza is back! After the enormous popularity of her 2014 house-pop single ‘Hideaway’, she went on collaborate with a stunning array of famous names. Names like Skrillex, Diplo, and Duran Duran, to name a few. Tragically, her career was put o...
