Why is it guilty? If you like it you like it.

This sounds like the Killers with more monotone vocals?

"Like the killers with more monotone vocals"
Spot on.
Actually more monotone than Brandon is quite a feat. The ideas are interesting but I have never been a fan of Andy's singing.

Its just generic really. The instrumental does not work well with his voice at all.

I think his singing style works better here than in BVB. This might be completely generic teeny
bopper bait, but at least it's bearable. He should dump BVB and just go solo.

Meh, it worked for me. Never been too hard on this guy. Sure, he hasn't a good vocal range, at all. But for what it is, it works. Rather a deep mediocre singer than a high pitched mediocre singer.

Ugh... I've tried to give this and BVB a chance but this guy is literally Chad Kroeger Jr. it's impossible for me to like his vocal style.

30 seconds to mars? is that you?

also, wtf happened to that "industrial sound" he promised? this is pop rock. it's so bland, i dislike it more than BVB. at least they're distinctive.

Listen to "Dust and Bones" by Night Terrors of 1927, this sounds way more similar to it that 30STM or AVA

Guy doesn't know how to maximize the potential his voice has. He could do something somewhat decent if he took a few goddamn singing classes. Other than that, song is forgettable but pretty pleasant.

He smokes near a pack a day I hear. Might want to stop that.

Jesus, someone needs to tell him to blow his nose. I've never heard a more nasally singing voice, and it's even worse with this instrumentally stripped-down project forcing his vocals into the front with nothing to hide behind. This guy got famous for reaching out to impressionable scene kids, not for talent.

In an interview he said he smoked 2 packs a day. This was in 2012 or 2013 though so he might have cut down to 1. Still, when you're a lead vocalist you shouldn't be smoking at all.

They will ruin his voice (sounds like they have). When I used to smoke my voice was awful. Couldn't hold a note to save my life via lack of breath.

At one point, Andy smoked up to 5 packs a day. This may or may not still be the case. (It sounds like it)

The song itself isn't terrible, but his voice just isn't suited for it; it would be better if he had a higher range.

5...is that possible? Holy shit. I've done a pack in a night when I used to go to shitty clubs and the next morning I felt like death.
Man that's fucked.
