Matthew James Allen – Don’t Let Go
‘Don’t Let Go’ by Matthew James Allen is a fresh and breezy acoustic slice of sunshine, taking melancholic themes and delivering them with a sense of hope.
Aesthetically there are hints of Mumford & Sons and David Gray, as well as artists like Gungor. Introspective and laced with honesty, Matthew James Allen’s music is speckled with hints of faith and hope; “Hold me now, don’t let go, you’re the only one I know that can change my way.”
Add to that the fact that the track’s chorus is a real earworm – after a few spins you’ll be humming that melody for ages. With a couple of new tracks out (‘You’ is also available) Matthew James Allen is one to keep a keen eye on, as good things are sure to be on the way.
