Marti West Seeks An Ethereal Demand On "Give Me Light"

Marti West makes music to sway to, to swoon to, to fall asleep to. His work is saturated by a soft desperation tugging each song along into the next, weaving together a quilt of ethereal acoustic tunes the English singer-songwriter has learned to do so well.

Hear what Marti had to tell us about his newest single “Give Me Light” below:

“Give Me Light” exists with a restrained urgency. There’s an underlying tension to it that moves the music forward, so even though it’s soaked in the soft, hazy melodies Marti always delivers, there’s something stronger threatening to break through the smooth surface. It’s atmospheric in its sparsity — layers of tender guitar work roll atop one another endlessly, creating a pretty texture of thumping, traveling rhythms that help to ground “Give Me Light” as the ethereal anthem it is.

Listen to “Give Me Light” below and connect with Marti West on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
