Matt Woods is back, with Nothing Less “than the best thing”. This is the second single of the year for the Cornwall born and raised, but now London-based, soul-pop artist. And God if he is not getting better and better.
Evolving from good pop sultry songs (somewhat compared to a James Morrison vibe) – with his first singles like Impression, In the Dark and Blue Skyes – he jut stepped it up. Pushing for a more Indietronic approach perfectly shown with Ain’t No Use (released earlier this year), he continues to showcase his full range for doing beautifully-elegant but very engaging high-beat songs.
I love the idea of people getting some joy out of what is really a heart breaking sentiment
With bits of engaging pop, perfect electronic hooks and what can be described as extreme good taste for placing beautiful classic piano chords, Nothing Less is a mesmerizing song. Matt‘s voice in this one just reaches another level: turning what his described by himself as the saddest song his ever made, into an almost obsessive eargasm. With a chorus that is really from another world.
His first E.P. is coming soon. Brace yourselves.
