Reliably informed

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Mount Johnson has busted out of lockdown to deliver his debut single, The Calm Will Come; a flurry of the guitar-driven ambient indie variety. Under this most recent banner, singer songwriter Matthew Johnson has taken influence from across the spectrum of the genre, mixing experimental soundscapes with a vibrant rock and roll energy.

There is an effort to create a unique environment for the ears, with different textures to explore and get lost in – whether that be the sparsely decorated verses, the melodically loaded chorus sections or the echo-drenched vocals that offer a plea of better times ahead. Even in these bleak times, things will get better.

Released: 05.03.21
