Standard

mat-hunsley-droppingFollowing Monday’s Clash premiere, ‘Dropping’ has raced to 1,000 Soundcloud streams in a matter of days.

Some press below:

“Newcastle artist Mat Hunsley knows that honesty is the only way. So when it comes to songwriting, he strips it all back – bare, open artistry, with a sense of lyricism hewn from his own experiences.” – Clash

“Mat Hunsley has an enigmatic way of reaching his listener in a contemplative and authentic way. With his newest release, ‘Dropping’ we hear more of his talented songwriting and comforting vocals.” – The Revue

“Mat Hunsley is only just working on his debut EP, but the very first single we get to hear is already setting the bar quite high. ‘Dropping’ is a very simple track, but super emotional and honest. Sometimes less is so much better.” – Stereofox

“Hunsley carves out some beautiful turns of phrase in lyrics that feel like they’re pouring out of a man who has lived a life. His vocals are tender but filled with a rich tone, that really blend perfectly with the twinkling strums of his guitar. He knows how to make his songs lift and fall, and creates real light and shade within music that crafts a world all of its own. An accomplished songwriter already, Dropping hints at one that will just continue to develop and still has plenty more tales left to tell.” – NARC. Magazine
