“Dont” is just one of the recently released singles from up and coming Manchester-based singer-songwriter Zac Chidgey. At the age of 19 years old, he’s already found his signature style which blends indie, pop, and acoustic together through the deftly fingerpicked notes on the guitar. When you hit play on Dont it really is no wonder why BBC Introducing were so keen to rate Zac Chidgey so highly.
Even though Dont is an incredibly stripped back and minimalistic soundscape, there’s plenty of distinction to be found between the ambient acoustic notes as Zac Chidgey has fused together the nostalgic appeal of acoustic folk and polished contemporary pop, making Dont an extremely accessible track from the first time of listening.
In the absence of a full instrumental arrangement, there’s a magnetic focus on Zac Chidgey’s reverberant alluring vocals which utilise baritone vibrato resulting in an infinitely alluring amount of mesmerism in his soundscapes.
