I thought the name Striking Matches sounded familiar. I had to do a quick search and found that there was a song I reviewed back in 2013 by this duo. However, I didn’t want to go back and read it and listen to the song quite yet.
I wanted to go into this new one with fresh ears.
I heard this one on Wild Country. It’s pretty high on the playlist right now. I don’t know if that means anything as far as ranking or whatever, but I would think that would increase the streams.
Anyway, check this one out.
When The Right One Comes Along – Striking Matches
Talk about different. I love it.
This song has elements of so many things in it, but it’s really stripped down and that brings the emotion out to the front. You can really hear the passion and all the life in this one.
The song is about finally getting to see what love is all about. You would think that it would come across as sappy, but this has a lounge music feel to it, but it’s definitely a happy song.
The emotion coming across is a recognition that there can be a lot of struggle in life with finding love. You can go through all kinds of different heartache. You can write it all off, but hopefully you find that right one and without explanation you just know that it’s the right fit.
Really a cool song from an exciting new duo. I hope this one gets some attention in the mainstream.
