An experienced musician, it is only recently that John has struck out with a solo project and a couple of tracks have surfaced, both having a slightly ’60s retro feel to them, though each quite different. The most recent of which is The World Will Keep Spinning Round.
The composition launches with a pronounced beat that the listener finds themselves involuntarily dipping alongside, with hints of the jazz and R&B influences of the era surfacing – keeping the just over one and a half minute long track trotting along at a fair old lick.
Given the two pieces to have surfaced thus far, I am hoping that 2017 will discover more by John Myrtle and I look forward to keeping you up to date on developments.
The English alt-folk creator Bruno Major is set to reveal his début LP in 2017.
Within the past twenty four hours his most recent track surfaced – Home.
A spell-binding composition with guitar and voice curling around each other as though growing on the same vine, the backdrop of the layers gives Home a dreamlike quality in which the listener can allow their mind to relax within the three minutes and twenty seconds of the song.
