Scott MCB - Single Review: That Day

10 Sep 2018 // A review by Corinne Rutherford

Scott MCB is a singer songwriter from Auckland. He has been busy developing his music style and has just released his latest single That Day along with his second video.

Scott is an Indie artist with a pop sound and although this song is a bright and breezy tune, oozing with those great summertime vibes and young carefree connotations, I got the feeling it was continuation of a journey from his first single which was lyrically darker. This track tells a story about acceptance and the word Universe is used at regular intervals throughout the song.

Listening to Scott’s music he has a sound sparkling with effervescence. “he draws influences from many genres with some not being typical for a singer songwriter”. I am not entirely sure there is any one genre “typical” to singer songwriters; however, he did used to play in heavy metal/rock bands which are a far cry from what he is now producing.

The videography accompanying That Day is polished and made me sit up and take notice about the location it was filmed in. Loved that long pier. He really captured the essence of summer brilliantly; fun in the sun with friends. The lively youthful exuberance accompanying his seemingly reflective mood suited the song perfectly.

Scott has previously said that his goal is to create music which is genuine, honest and positive and which holds some form of feeling or meaning for his listeners. I believe his lyrics and sound reflects this. That Day is a fresh upbeat tune perfect for guiding us into the balmy days of summer.

Marshmellow - Album Review: The Feels
13 Feb 2019 // by Corinne Rutherford
Once I put the w on the end of Marshmellow, it became clear that the alter-ego of singer-songwriter Marshall Smith based in Auckland definitely was not a DJ/EDM artist masquerading as a soft chewy sugar based confectionery, but a well-established award winning New Zealand based composer and producer, writing music for major international movies, documentaries and commercials. You might know his face from many TV adverts and presenter of Big Wednesday.

Andrew McLennan - Single Review: So Easy
30 Jan 2019 // by Corinne Rutherford
When I see the name Andrew McLennan (AKA Andrew Snoid), my mind goes straight to 80's NZ New Wave pop music, when the likes of Pop Mechanix, Blam Blam Blam, The Plague and The Swingers became household names, but it is Coconut Rough with the huge hit Sierra Leone that triggered the light bulb to go off in my head. A song instantly recognisable by people of a certain age.

The Generation are a relatively new band to emerge from The Waikato; founded by singer/songwriter ZVI and guitarist Grenville Bell (ex-Katchafire), and they are starting to turn some heads with their smooth blend of original Reggae/Soul and progressive music. They certainly turned mine.
