Andy Smythe Champions Social Commentary With New Single “Love Ain’t Free”

Andy Smythe‘s “Love Ain’t Free” Tackles Post-Brexit Struggles with Folk-Rock Flair

As the UK goes through a very important general election, Andy Smythe‘s newest single, “Love Ain’t Free,” stands out as a powerful protest song that speaks to the hard facts of life in Britain after Brexit.

The song, which skilfully brings to light the legal and financial problems that British people face when they want to marry an EU member. It also speaks to the larger social and economic problems that young people face in a political environment that is changing quickly.

After the success of his well-reviewed record “Poetry in Exile,” Smythe continues to show how good he is at writing a wide range of styles with “Love Ain’t Free.”

The song has both traditional folk parts and a fast-paced rock vibe. A catchy saxophone riff and Beatrice Limonti’s mesmerising fiddle work make it even better.

This mix makes me think of folk and rock stars, like when Bob Dylan worked with Scarlett Rivera and when Steve Wickham joined The Waterboys.

The track’s creative soundscapes go well with Smythe’s imaginative lyrics. They were produced by Dave Palmer, who also worked on “Poetry in Exile.” The production of the song adds to its theme depth, making it more interesting to listen to and emphasising its message of anger and thought.

Smythe’s strong four-octave voice and skilful playing of the guitar, bass, and saxophone make the story of the song very clear.

His band, which includes a bass, fiddle, mandolin, and drums, has been making waves, selling out places in South London and getting praise at folk/rock events all over England.
