Who? Lights off, notes from the keys resonating in the room. The echo of a voice reaches your ears before the lights go back on: This is how Martin Luke Brown shows tend to begin. And a year after featuring in the season premiere of season 13 of Grey’s Anatomy, with the song Bring It Back To Me, Martin Luke Brown has released a brand new single: Into Yellow. Creating a unique distant electro-indie folk atmosphere, the high-pitched voice of Martin Luke Brown vibrates, even after the last notes fade away, leaving behind them a lasting feeling of relaxation. With his new song, the singer and songwriter from Leicester once again shared a new side of his musical universe. “The last couple of years I’ve worked out I’m not a one-genre kind of guy, I just really like writing songs. Honest ones,” said Martin Luke Brown to Tmrw Magazine. For having seen this artist perform live many times, including once in a derelict house in East London, I know that I am a huge fan of his angelic voice, endless rhythms and amazing (almost-shy) stage presence.
What to say? “A pure and relaxing voice that fits many genres, he’s as talented live and acoustic as he is recorded and coming out from your headphones.”
The maths: With Into Yellow, Martin Luke Brown evolves in a world that is 50% Bon Iver, 20% RY X, 20% Band of Horses, 10% The xx = 100% powerfully relaxing, one of the new indie talent not to hesitate to follow.
The releases His new single Into Yellow was released on multiple online streaming platforms in mid-June.
