MYLYRICALMIND - SINGLE REVIEW

MyLyricalMind - Promises 
MyLyricalMind - Promises

Release Date: 30th September 2013

Mancunian singer songwriters are ten-a-penny these days so MyLyricalMind (known to his ma as Matt Wood) is up against it from the word go. Then again, the half glass full approach is to think that he's grown up with a rich musical heritage all around him so surely that will help him perform better - like an average footballer playing in a team of superstars. 'Promises' is a mix of styles that is intriguing enough to keep your attention and maintain interests. Elements of Ed Sheeran, Elbow, Snow Patrol and a hint of how Jeff Buckley might have sounded had he lived long enough to embrace new technologies and new ways of song writing. I wouldn't call this groundbreaking stuff necessarily but I like it and I'm pretty sure my friend Bearded Wit would like it a bit too.
