Matt Burn "Keep It There"
I had initially planned to include this in a forthcoming ‘What I’m Listening To…’ post, but this is a track I’ve had on repeat for a while now. I’ve had my ears so locked into the mainstream that I tend to forget that there are some gems to be discovered beyond the charts. “Keep it There” is the first track lifted from currently unsigned, American singer Matt Burn’s (@MattBurnMusic) upcoming mixtape The Jungle, out September 10th. It’s a lovely slice of mellow R&B—driven by a lush piano backing and an understated beat—wrapped around Burn’s warm and layered vocal that fluctuates gloriously between a composed falsetto to bolder adlibs. Check it out below:
