1000 Beasts is the alias of Irish producer Cian Sweeney, who collaborates with different artists on every track to make indie pop & hip-hop inspired tracks.
Platinum-selling producer 1000 Beasts – who has over 15,000,000 streams on Spotify alone – has teamed up with Irish singer-songwriter Alex Tierney for a brand new single, called 'For You & I'.
The second collaboration between the duo is accompanied by an intriguing video, which rapidly flips through drawings in a sketchbook. The track itself will feature on 1000 Beasts highly-anticipated forthcoming album, and is layered with an 808 loop to create its multi-dimensional sound.
"We started out with this Guzheng sample that I had manipulated & built a beat around," says 1000 Beasts of the track. "When I showed this to Alex, he really vibed with it and got the verse and the chorus down so quickly. It was such an easy process, I always feel like the best tracks come together like after. Afterwards I added a soulful brass part to the bridge, it has a classic Jay Z feel to it I think in that it's a contrast but a perfect counter-balance to the rest of the track.
"We were lucky enough to play this track a few times over the past year, like at the private live streaming gig we did for a small audience in the Gate Cinema last Autumn, and it always goes down so well so I can't wait to share it properly."
