Don Mai – “Won’t Let You Down”

Don Mai is an Australian singer/songwriter who shows an accessible, melodic sound on new track “Won’t Let You Down.” An acoustic guitar accompanies the vocals to start, a fairly sparse accompaniment. The “I wanna know how it feels to hold you in my arms,” vocal line coincides with the addition of a rhythm section, followed by soft keys. Fans of Ed Sheeran and other easy-listening acoustic-minded pop will likely want to pay attention to Don Mai.

The artist elaborates on the track: “I was inspired to write “Won’t Let You Down” because I was really into someone, but she had been through some bad relationships and had her walls up. Still to this day I’m not sure if she didn’t like me or if she just didn’t want to be hurt again. I was actually writing another song at the time but it wasn’t going anywhere, but as soon as I started writing this song. Everything pieced together perfectly and we even finished the whole recording in 1 day.”

“Won’t Let You Down” and other memorable tracks released in July can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
