Andrew X has released a new single in Whatever It Takes that builds upon the radio rock tradition of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ Learning to Fly and Jeff Healey’s Angel Eyes and incorporates just a hint of Endless Summer Nights-era Richard Marx. Huge synths and splashy are the perfect one-two to bring his vocals into the stratosphere. The sizzling guitar work and intense drums work well as the bridge. Moving to a more thoughtful and soul-searching style for the single’s second half, Andrew X puts out an engrossing vocal-heavy section to ride out the single. The resulting effort has more than enough depth for fans to continue to find new dynamics and interplays many, many plays in.
