Near Death Experience – ‘Moves’

Near Death Experience are leaping out of the UK’s capital with their infectious and hard-hitting sound. They have only recently joined forces to make a band which bring a similar quality to a rock supergroup. 

Kicking off this triumphant release is ‘Ian Whiteling’ taking the lead with a vocal which shouts out with charisma. He provides a lot of courage in the opening section, and it has a ‘Tom Waits’ sound, which comes more dominant than ever with him putting his all into his delivery. Behind the vocal is a modern bass rhythm which proves the bassist’s ability to churn out a slammer. A drumbeat then hits and comes with an unusual structure with a slowish yet energetic tempo. 

Once the chorus hits, all the guns are firing in force. The guitar lead which echoes around the mix is nail-biting, and it leads us into the ultimate solo with it taking a 60s stance with it reminding me of the greats from the classic rock genre. Melodic is a strong point for this band, and their inflexion in the chorus is enthralling with it bringing lots of memorabilities, so much so you will not get it out of your coconut for some time.

Towards the ending of the track, the tempo picks up the pace and the band shine with stomping hits. It makes for the perfect head-shaker with ‘Ian’ screaming out with charismatic flavour in the background before delving into the chorus again for one last massive delivery. The finale is brilliant, and it leaves us itching to hit replay to get another fix one more time.

Matt Marcii & Robbie Hutton – ‘Sugar’

Matt Marcii is a pop producer and writer based in Cambridge, England. He discovered his love for music whilst at University in Scotland and started writing songs and recording fellow students in his student halls at local recording studios in Stirling. Matt Marcii (pronounces Mar-Sea) name is said to be inspired by three of his biggest icons. Two inside of music and one from outside of music. No one has guessed all three role models correctly. Matt Marcii’s simple aim is to create catchy melodies that stay burried in the listener’s minds after the first lesson. Matt is inspired by great Swedish songwriters and grew up playing and listening to orchestral music which crops up in his pop productions.

A shining example of modern independent songwriting, Robbie Hutton has carved his unique sound from a mixture of soulful pop and ballad-driven rock. Reaching back into his own experiences to create modern tales of heartbreak, catharsis and loss, the Stirling man possesses a classic grasp of storytelling so often neglected today. With a diverse catalogue and an impressive vocal range, the 26-year-old has the capacity to reach a huge range of audiences, with each song bringing something different to the table.
