Matthew E. White’s new single “Genuine Hesitation” has a bit of Dire Straits’ “Sultans of Swing” in it and that’s no bad thing. Standout lines such as “I always liked the desert baby / I need the wilderness” or “It would be nice to leave before the curtain falls on me / But I think our contradiction has a flavour of authenticity” make you want to dig for the hidden gems too. The production keeps your ears buzzing with vocal hooks, piano hooks, synth hooks, guitar hooks, and just like that, you’re flopping on the floor like a fish gasping for air. Gimme more! Gimme more!
