ANDY SUZUKI & THE METHOD, “Save Me”
The last concert I saw before pandemic lockdown included a fun set by NYC’s Andy Suzuki, when he opened for Allen Stone in my city. The personable singer/songwriter/guitarist and his project The Method return with “Save Me”, their first new music since their third album, 2019’s Alibi. In “Save Me”, we hear Andy mostly in Prince-ly falsetto mode while the song is anchored in a classic R&B-rock arrangement featuring thundering drums and percussion as well as Andy’s wicked guitar work. If you enjoy music by Miguel, Anderson.Paak, Allen Stone and others who regularly straddle R&B and rock and turn those genres into one rich melting pot of style, then you can put “Save Me” near the top of your list. Check out the well-shot supernatural-themed video above which also features The Method’s drummer/percussionist Kozza.
