Heartbreak. We’ve all been there. Whether it’s being let down by your long-term opposite number or pining for that first unrequited love. Some people fall harder than others, leaving the stark barrenness that follows love entirely unbearable. Others choose not to fall, purely to avoid that feeling. These people are soulless, as it is in that heartache that true beauty is often formed.
RAIKES singer/songwriter Matt Twornicki has clearly had his fair share of the above. Their long awaited début – THE QUIET EP – is a twenty minute ode to love lost and lovers spurned. Heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics with delicate melodies intertwine with warm guitars and a rhythm section that ebbs and flows with every beat of yearning that each song delivers.
