The latest track from Matt Saxton, “It’s Alright” is a touching success, yet another from the English artist — who impressed with the tracks “Animal” and “It’s Only Now That I Know” in prior months. “I was lonely ’til you came along,” Saxton croons alongside a solemn piano. A steadier piano presence joins alongside gentle percussion and underlying acoustics, the reassuring “it’s alright,” refrain resonating amidst lead vocals that yearn for a relationship’s continuation. The “I don’t wanna turn cold,” line lends heartbreaking resonance, exploring how one’s personality can shift entirely following a relationship’s demise (or, for the better, upon finding someone special).
This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2022’ Spotify playlist.
