Andy Savours trained under Alan Moulder and Flood at Assault & Battery Studios for 7 years, which put him in the engineering hot seat early on with projects including SIGUR ROS, THE HORRORS and THE KILLERS. After branching out on his own he engineered MY BLOODY VALENTINE’s long awaited follow up to 'Loveless', 'MBV' the 'See My Friends' album for RAY DAVIES plus added programming on GOLDFRAPP'S Silver Eye Album. He established himself as a mixer with clients such as ROISIN MURPHY, PNAU and THE KILLS and went on to produce records for THE PAINS OF BEING PURE AT HEART, CLOUD BOAT, MR HUDSON, OUR GIRL and THE MAGIC GANG. He is also one half of the electronic folk duo MALPAS, who released their debut album, 'Rain River Sea', on Killing Moon Records, and YEBO Records in the US.
Recently Andy has been co-producing and mixing for Domino Records signings SORRY
and producing and mixing singles for LADYBIRD, PUREST and JOAN as well as the latest EP by Brighton band FUR. He has also been recording the new album for MY BLOODY VALENTINE and worked with KEVIN SHIELDS on remastering ';oveless' and 'Isn't Anything' for Vinyl. He has also mixed for another Domino records signing PETER PERRET and Brighton band DREAM WIFE. Earlier this year he added production and mixed LIZ LAWRENCE'S 'Pity Party' album which was recently made BBC 6music's album of the week.
At the start of 2019 Andy set-up a studio in the old Battery studios building in Willesden. Packed with an extensive collection of recording equipment, mics, instruments, amps and his large synth collection, it’s big enough to track full bands but is also great for programming, overdubbing and mixing. The studio is built around a vintage 56 channel MTA series 980 console (previously used on Radiohead’s 'OK Computer' album) and features a large mix room, a large tracking room and a good sized drum/vocal booth. Originally built in 1976 by Morgan studios with acoustic design by Eastlake and Andy Munro the studio sounds fantastic and with 3 separate recording areas offers a great deal of flexibility.
At the new studio Andy recently produced and mixed the critically acclaimed 'Sunglasses' single for BLACK COUNTRY, 'New Road,' the new single for hyped London rapper NATTY WYLAH and mixed the debut record by MUSH for Memphis Industries. In addition to this, his new electronic project FRERE are about to release their 'Big Hug' EP on TOURIST's Monday records and will be supporting him on his UK tour in the spring.
