‘Crooked Teeth’ is the latest all-consuming offering of aural solace from New Jersey-born artist, Mike Freund: the progressively cinematic soundscape is transfixing from the first sepia-tinged mellifluous verse to the last.
The single runs you through stunningly delicate finger-picked acoustic guitar solos, organ notes hitting like celestial sunrays, and that gorgeously rare feeling of wanting to sing the lyrics before you have them fully memorised when the chorus hits.
The masterful soundscape exhibits the affable authenticity of Mike Freund with his blues licks which come with a meditative kick and his sonorous imagery-projecting vocals which will leave you seriously inclined to keep hitting play.
With their influences ranging from The Allman Brothers to Guns and Roses, Mike Freund is set to enamour fans of both and anything between.
You can check out Crooked Teeth via Spotify.
