You know, I’ve never been approached to review music before. Well, save the time I reviewed Over It for my school newspaper (who you should totally check out if you have a chance.) Even though I am on hiatus, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to bring this to you.
I was sent a review request by Brielle Poland with Candyrat Records to listen to Matthew Santos’s new single “Under the Microscope.” I was instantly in love with it. Definitely within the current genre I’m listening to, and I felt like the song captured the feelings in a certain relationship within my books. In the past, Mattew has worked with Lupe Fiasco on his track “Superstar.” With four albums currently out under Candyrat, “Under the Microscope” is the first single off of his soon to be released, new album “Into the Further.”
Here is a little “what you need to know” from the wonderful people at Candyrat:
Matthew is a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter from Chicago. His music focuses on a unique hybrid of alternative/indie-rock/soul and folk genres.
“Under the Microscope” is the first video from his new record Into the Further. Matthew is currently running a crowd funding campaign to help finish the record and to get his fans more involved in the process. Here is the link: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/matthewsantos
