VIDEO: Andy Shauf shared two new singles and a music video

Colin Medley

Andy Shauf released two new singles called "Satan" and "Jacob Rose." He teamed up with director Ryan Steel for a music video for "Satan," and said of the song:
When I was young, there were a few years where I wasn’t allowed to celebrate Hallowe’en. The church that I grew up in was saying that Hallowe’en was “The Devil’s Day” and that it had its roots in satanic rituals. After a few years of this, my parents realized it was a bit silly to deny us our free candy and let us resume. The Christianity that I was brought up in said that believers went to heaven and non-believers went to hell. A sort of cartoon-like simplification of ancient texts. So with the lyrics of this song, I was trying to take this cartoon-like simplification of life (and death) and pair it with a cartoon-like version of this Christian hell. Where after you complete a long and disciplined life, you find yourself holding a bite-sized chocolate bar stapled to an invitation to a Hallowe’en pool party with Satan himself.
Watch the video for "Satan" and listen to "Jacob Rose" below.
