The haunting, acoustic sounds produced by the talented Mat Hunsley take another step forward soon, with debut EP To Being Free released on Friday 18th November. Before that, he’s let lead single Fires stoke the excitement, with the new track a real representation of what this singer-songwriter can do.
The Newcastle-based artist had his debut track released last month, and he continues in much the same vein; personal tales told earnestly through heartfelt guitar playing and his passionate voice. Shades of Bon Iver and James Vincent McMorrow are no bad thing, and it’s intelligent lyricism and vocals which have real vulnerability in both their words and the sincerity with which they’re delivered. This young musician seems to have solidified his sound further with this new track, and with the EP available for pre-order on iTunes now, To Being Free could well be one giant step towards something incredible.
