A new release from Mat D brings a whole lot of impactful and passionate soul to a southern rock banger that is completely built off of emotional drive and hits with such intensity that you can feel it in your bones.
"The Company I Keep" is a full-bodied and very powerful single that bares a lot and in turn, feels relatable and understandable.
It's cinematic delivery musically feels welcoming and warm. In the end you feel like you know the artist like a friend. Like he's talking to you directly and its pretty awesome and mainly because the song delivers this very personal and fiery performance.
The single also bears this inspirational undertone and strength which is, in part, what the song is about.
Guitars ring out in anthemic form and give off that same energy that the vocals do which is tough to match for sure.
This was a beautifully woven and built release that will certainly make the hairs on your arms stand up straight.
A wonderous and striking single, "The Company I Keep" leaves quite a mark and it's not just those bountiful vocals or that wailing guitar. It's the energy of the whole band. It all sort of eels like every player is feeding off of each other's energies which is quite outstanding really.
The song is living and breathing and come at you with a gusto you can't look away from.
It's been quite some time since you've heard anything with this kind of raw energy and delivery. It's addicting as hell.
Headphones and a glass of whiskey is the best way to play this one.
