Loyal Lobos

Loyal Lobos' "Criminals" is a touching ode to a dear friend

Andrea Silva's latest single, "Criminals," feels like you're eavesdropping into two good friends having an honest conversation. Silva, who goes by Loyal Lobos, recounts a series of past experiences —and how these have shaped their present lives. "You were also there in the morning/ When I saw everything dark," she admits, playing a dreamy, cascading guitar melody set to swelling ambiance—an element that gives the song a strong feeling of nostalgia.

"Criminals" is the first reveal off a series of sessions Silva recorded with singer-songwriter Evan Voytas and famed songwriter/producer Terry Geiger. She's currently in the middle of a West Coast tour supporting Girl Ultra, including a stop at the Regent Theater on September 17. Juan Rodríguez
