"nav/attack in L.A. Weekly's Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2016"

Andrew Lynch has engineered records for the likes of Sia, John Cale and OFF!. Now, as Nav/Attack, Lynch is able to explore sonic landscapes on his own terms. On his first album under that moniker, released via Dangerbird in October, Lynch’s sparkly fusion of brass, keys and samplers creates a unique sound. With his array of accessible tunes and a penchant for creative visuals to accompany his music (plus endorsements from some of his famous friends, like Adam Goldberg, star of the "Newsbreak" video), it’s easy to foresee Nav/Attack capturing listeners’ attention in the year to come. —Daniel Kohn - L.A. Weekly

"Watch Adam Goldberg Star in Synthpop Project nav/attack's Music Video"

Los Angeles is home to synthpop project nav/attack, founded by Andrew Lynch, who released his self-titled debut album on Dangerbird Records in early October.

The LP itself takes its listeners on a post-computer-age voyage that seamlessly skates between the line of a technology-masked society and the raw human conscience. One of the experimental indie records, "More Wins," has been channeled into an abstract music video (watch below).

It all began with a drum loop that Lynch created using an iPhone app, giving the song a "droney quality." When listening to the final product, Lynch says, "it sounds like a machine that used to be human trying to justify to itself its own transformation."

The antiquated campy aesthetic of its visual counterpart provides the story a unique charm, fluently bringing viewers into the characters’ journey. This is one of six videos Lynch has made for the album, in which he introduces the “evil doctor” of the story, Dr. Ross Arlen. Viewers may notice Adam Goldberg, the actor in films Saving Private Ryan and A Beautiful Mind, as the reporter in the story.

"I met Adam Goldberg years ago through a band I was playing in at the time. We share a deep admiration for jazz, and I happen to play trumpet and piano, so he started incorporating me into his own records and I became a member of his band, The Goldberg Sisters," explains Lynch. "I also engineered and mixed his latest record. I was starting to prep the videos when Adam asked me and some other music pals to play bit parts in his film No Way Jose. I had so much fun working with him that I wrote the role of Edward Eagle (the news reporter from the videos) specifically for Adam and he's just perfect." - The Hollywood Reporter

There's tons of videos on this new album, they're weird, sometimes gross and sometimes feature actor Adam Goldberg. Take a look at the Nav/Attack Youtube to see what we mean. - KPCC - Southern California Public Radio


Still working on that hot first release.



Selected as one of L.A. Weekly's Top 10 Artists to Watch in 2016, nav/attack is the brainchild of Los Angeles-based producer/engineer Andrew Lynch.  Born in rural Alaska, Lynch is the singer, synth warrior, horn player, and drum machine enthusiast behind nav/attack.

Discovered by 1950's pop star Pat Boone (Elvis used to open for him), Lynch was quickly signed to Boone's publishing company.

Lynch is also a filmmaker and directed all the music videos nav/attack, which have premiered on The Hollywood Reporter,, and Pure Volume.

Lynch has performed on BBC Radio 6 Music, infoFRANCE, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson as a member of actor/photographer/musician Adam Goldberg's band, The Goldberg Sisters. He most recently recorded and mixed Goldberg's "Stranger's Morning" LP.

On two coffee-fueled occasions, Lynch did studio time with punk supergroup OFF!: recording and mixing their "First Four EP's" box set and engineering their full-length follow-up "OFF!"

For nav/attack, Lynch plays everything himself (even trumpet) but for drums enlists frequent Danger Mouse collaborator, Steven Nistor. The result is an ambientronic album that combines the slowly evolving melodic patterns of Steve Reich, the piano beats of Radiohead, and the lyrical idiosyncrasies of Talking Heads.
