New single ‘Andy’ is out today on iTunes. Last week Adela & The Meanits revealed the official music video for the track.

“Andy is a song I wrote after a male friend of mine tried on my mothers clothes. The idea of both a male and female persona intrigued me and gave me the idea of this character; Andy”- Says lead singer Adela Meally.

The video’s story line follows ‘Demi Whore’, a well known Dublin Drag Queen, as she sets off on an interview for a job, in both personas of ‘Andy’. Bold and efficaciously fun, this charming song and video is taken from the album ‘Kinda Wild’ which will be released in the August 2012 in support of the Long Road Home tour the band will be taking on which involves playing 32 gigs in the 32 counties of Ireland in the month of August.
