The Music Butcher Reviews: “So Far”
Matthew Pinder is a Bahamian singer songwriter who has quickly gained a name for himself in the indie music world. In 2018 Pinder released his debut album “Too Young To Understand” along with the single “Break My Heart and Let Me Go” featuring Molly Bush. The song was premiered in Atwood Magazine and was hailed as “mesmerizingly bittersweet” with both songwriters “plaintively pouring their souls in to a microphone, as emotionally vulnerable as their performance is raw.” The song was also featured on the Spotify curated playlist Folk & Friends. Pinder’s then released the single and accompanying video for his track “St. Paul, MN”. We featured the song on our Playlists and hailed its “infectious poppy vibe… an interesting counterpart to the mood of the video and lyrics.” Matthew is back with his latest single “So Far”, released Friday September 13th. “So Far” showcases Pinder’s unique indie-folk/pop-esque stylings and his well-crafted lyrics that let listeners into the vulnerable space of Pinder’s mind. The single embodies a vintage folk vibe reminiscent of the 70’s that complements Pinder’s raspy, raw vocals. Pinder boasts over 60,000 Spotify followers, has been featured in 3 Spotify curated playlists, and his stand-out single “Golden Hour” has received over 600,000 streams since its release earlier this year.

Matthew Pinder – “So far”
-We’ve covered Pinder in the past. You can quickly hear why we’ve had him back with a quick listen of this track “So far.” The writing is clever and engaging. The overall strength of the track is in Pinder’s vocal style complimented by his complex writing style. In a world with so many vapid lyrics and happy-go-lucky style, it’s nice to hear someone bring conviction and complexity to their music. This is an impassioned track for fans of intellectual singer songwriter music.
