Andy is Typing
Andy is Typing…’s influences range from Hong Kong rock bands like Beyond & KOLOR; to Britpop classics like Oasis; J-rock and even classical music. Their inspiration for songwriting revolves around everyday stories happening around them. Their vision is very clear: they want their music to be authentic, melodic, simple and universal. They love to write good music, and will become the best Hong Kong band the world has ever seen.

The band name "Andy is Typing..." was inspired by social messaging. As they were trying to rename the band in the chat group, it was constantly showing "Andy is typing..." as Andy kept typing. The other members immediately liked the feeling of the phrase, thus renaming the band to "Andy is Typing...".
"Andy is Typing..." released their debut single <Take A Break> in April 2017. Arranged with aggressive bass slap-pop riffs and intense drum parts, it is peculiarly a love song written by JKY to express his fatigue over being involved in complicated modern relationships.
Later on, Andy is Typing... had an opportunity to set up a feature with KOLOR, a well-known established Hong Kong rock band, and released their fourth single <Don't Believe> which was originally written by Andy is Typing... and co-arranged by both bands. <Don't Believe> is the first song from the band that is available in both English and Cantonese versions.
Following the release of several singles like <Lost Pearl> and <Seoul Pretty>, the band released their first EP <3:1> in Jan 2021 with six songs. The gimmick of the EP is that it has 3 different versions of lyrics
(Cantonese, English and Mandarin) for the songs.
In Feb 2022, Andy is Typing… released an experimental lo-fi beat type of track named < 答應我要好好的過>, contrasting the band’s usual direct and rock music type of vibe. Later on in September of the same year, the band released another single named <WILL BE FINE>, a song about having a carefree attitude.
