Stirring vocals are one way to get my attention, but strong songwriting is what pushes many acts to the top of my playlist. Londoner Matt Woods drives home both of those factors on shadowy new single, “Impression”. Woods’ vocals have the pained approach of Chet Faker and Jack Garratt, but grip a darker edge as the narrator describes an encounter he can’t quite shake. The effective artwork emulates the topic as well.
