Fans of David Bowie and ELO; we’ve found one of the best emerging Alt Rock artists on the scene to date. The reminiscence to the iconic acts is beyond stark. Matt Glennon’s playfully sweet vocal range tackles the quintessential lyricism within the track to create a poignant narrative of life in the 21st century. We all know it’s a bit rubbish and confusing, but considering our modern disparity inspired this sensational track, we can’t complain too much. Whilst I absolutely adored the concept behind Illusion, the simplicity behind the end rhymes stood out a little too much for me and registered as a little forced and exaggerated. Beyond that Illusion is a viscerally stunning track which has a timeless, iconic feel stamped all over it. With a Lo Fi Folk feel to the track it’s hard not to fall in love with Matt Glennon’s deftly candied style which carries a hint of Country and a layering of Pop for the perfect polish.
