Marti West is an English folk-pop singer-songwriter living in Göteborg, Sweden. After releasing a mini-album, VIII, written in the sparse northern landscapes and minimalist aesthetic of the Scandinavian lifestyle, he’s back with a new single, ‘Give Me Light’, (the first of an EP release that will come at the end of the year), continuing his artistic trajectory by placing intimate soft-spoken lyrics in an atmospheric setting.
The track is filled with emotive guitar work, set against beautiful lyrics which are sung by Marti West’s soft and ethereal voice. Give Me Light is an introspective song that hinges on the duality between fear and hope. The verses spiral through our doubts and fears but the choruses lift us out of them and return us to optimism. It’s an emotional track that leaves the listener only wanting more.
