Scott Matthews – Into the Firing Line/Is This Love?

A double A side from the softly spoken folk singer/songwriter, showcases two distinct, but equally welcome performances.

Sounding like a less constipated Tom Baxter, Matthews has a sweet, radio friendly voice, though Into the Firing Line is stoked on a fire that sets light to a song of proper passion.

The Bob Marley cover that completes this double A side collection is a simple, back to basics number, that of course never touches the wonderful original, but offers a pleasant perspective on a work of genuine genius.

A decent couple of tunes, showing a variation many of Matthews’ peers lack, and real signs of potential.

7.0/10

Release Date: 13 Jul
