MyLyricalMind - Drop Me A Line

Single review by

People like to have categories and dividing lines between different kinds of music, when in reality the scope of what's out there would be better represented by a massive smudge as all the genres intertwine and cross over each other. When does hard-rock become metal for example? Yeah, genres are rubbish but we still use them. When does alt-folk become dreampop for example? Well, we'd say right about here, on this single from MyLyricalMind, the solo project of 22-year-old Mancunian Matt Wood.

He has a few tracks available and an EP called 'A Quiet Hurricane' from which this song is taken. He describes himself as an acoustic artist and the spine of this song is an acoustic guitar. But add some strings, layered production and generally add flesh to the bones and you arrive at what we'd describe as dream-folk. 'Drop Me A Line' is a very good song for starters, and when you add Wood's voice which is distinctive and highly likable, and produce it in such a way as this, then a good song becomes even better. Top marks for not being another dull acoustic busker like half the stuff that finds its way to our inbox.
