Martyn McKenzie

Opened (demo)

By • Jul 14th, 2011 • Category: demonstration

Sometimes just a wee bit of drumming is enough to make your bog-standard acoustic act stand out. The voice has a feel of Craig or Charlie, only even more broad in accent; all we know is that he’s 23 and has been gigging since he was 16 and there should be an EP this summer. So all we can do is judge the music… and it’s nice actually, a strong clear voice and the lead track ‘Opened’ has a wee wordless chorus (i.e. “oooh-eee-oooh”) which quickly gets lodged in the head. Second tune ‘Sparks’ has some very nice guitar backing up his voice which in a higher falsetto seems to lose the strong accent and the whole thing is like Nick Drake backed up by John Martyn.
