I was recently sent “Like Nothing Else” by Scott Swain via PlugginBaby. Just a glance at the artwork and I had a good feeling about this track and I was not wrong. Earthy and soaring vocals delivered in a bed of acoustic guitars is just what one needs on a hot Tuesday night. My favourite bit was the outro though, when all the harmonies come in and Scott repetitively chants “You should fear the darkness in us all”. The song is definitely a good representation of the beauty that is the underground music scene in the U.K.

Introducing London based singer-songwriter, Mark Mathews and his soulful music. Mark sent me his track “Dying To Stay Alive”, what I loved about this track was its simplicity and how beautifully Mark’s voice delivers the song in a bed of acoustic strumming. My favourite part, however, when the percussion unexpectedly comes in and adds gorgeous colours to the track enhancing it even more. The live and rustic vibes of this track can give anyone goosebumps and for a second I felt as if I was actually listening to Mark sing live at a show.
While listening to Mark’s music, I could not help but think of a band I used to love as a kid – The All American Rejects. The track made me reminisce about my teenage years, probably this is why I instantly latched onto it and liked it even more. Mark pledges to release a new track on the last Friday of every month with his project #NewMusicEveryMonth, a true example of consistency and hard work.

From the moment I heard Matt Johnson’s voice for the first time, I knew I was going to love any song that he sings or writes. Matt is a British singer/songwriter who has been actively putting stuff out on platforms such as Youtube and Spotify. The best thing about Matt’s music is how organic and fresh it is so when his new single “Warplane” came out I had to check it out. Co-written with Ian Markx, Warplane is an amazing track. The harmonies and the arrangement will keep things exciting till the end and the gorgeous and soulful lyrics sung in Matt’s voice are bound to melt your heart.
