Once again, Bittersweet Machines (a.k.a. Matt Mocharnuk) delivers another potent shot of melodic adrenaline infused with 80s pop-rock sensibilities of the highest order!
As always, an anthemic chorus of power is the main attraction on “Only You and Me” although it’s fair to say that the insistent drive of the song rhythm is infectious as well.
“Hold Still” is the ‘B-side’ that might have been flipped to by DJs, if this were indeed the 80s. Melancholy and heart-tugging, this is Mocharnuk at his best, laying bare his raw emotions via the right chords, hooks, arrangements and that fragile voice.
Kudos yet again! This is why I continue to write about music in these artless times.
