All the gritty-meets-gorgeous aesthetic embedded in the AWAY sound makes total sense once you understand his musical upbringing. Much like that of his heroes Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Thom Yorke of Radiohead and shock rocker Marilyn Manson, the music of AWAY lives in the rock and electronic crossroads. And just like his idols, he refuses to remain in one lane, abandoning genre classification and limitations with no regard.
As one of the foremost independent artists bubbling up from the underground, AWAY is challenging the status quo the only way he knows how: by creating on his own terms and by his own rules. And as electronic music continues to shift into new sonic territories, AWAY is already ahead of the pack.
