Matthew Pinder is a singer songwriter from the Bahamas. In 2018 Pinder released his debut album “Too Young To Understand” featuring the single “Break My Heart and Let Me Go” featuring Molly Bush. The song was premiered in Atwood Magazine and was hailed as “mesmerizingly bittersweet” with both songwriters “plaintively pouring their souls in to a microphone, as emotionally vulnerable as their performance is raw.” The song was also featured on the Spotify curated playlist Folk & Friends. Pinder’s latest release is the single and accompanying video for his track “St. Paul, MN”.
The song gets right into it, beginning with a giant wave of sounds centered around a slinky guitar riff flowing with upbeat melodic rhythm. The verses have a mellow and quirky quality with tight and simple drums giving a backbone to the punchy chord structure. The guitar has a vintage tone and dreamy feel to it, being a little punky and also classically smooth. The energy leads right into the chorus that catches your ear with Pinder’s percussive delivery of the lyrics through his unique and personal voice. The song has an infectious poppy vibe to it that is an interesting counterpart to the mood of the video and lyrics. Classic songwriting technique with a modern sound gives this one a sleek and stylish flare while still hitting the heartstrings.
