Sunshine CATHERINE RECORDS The acclaimed songsmith is riding the crest of a wave after supporting Rag ‘N’ Bone Man and receiving rapturous reviews. After listening to ‘Sunshine’, it’s easy to see why, as it’s a soul-stirring, relentless­ly uplifting number, which stitches together gospel and pop to create a handclap-driven joy. Matthews’ gravelly vocals are gloriously gritty, and the brass and soulful backing vocals add an extra layer of warmth.
