Matthew Young blends the idylls of r&b ballads and soul madrigals with the sonic abrasiveness of electronica. ‘Lean Close’ opens with acute twangs that portends something darkly ominous, which is strange because surely that’s the opposite of what Young intended. From an artist with one tune on his Soundcloud account and, at the time of writing this, 74 followers, ‘Lean Close’ is remarkably assured, both in its lyrics and execution.
I'm the Editor of The Vibe Guide. I also occasionally dabble with the label side, too. Drop me a line if you've got an interesting story. If you're sending promo, please don't include the age of the producer/singer - this isn't the porn industry - if you're talented, you're talented :)
