Brother // Matt Corby
Matt Corby is a 22 year old indie/ folk/ blues musician from Australia with stunningly piercing blue eyes and the title of runner up on Australian Idol. I was really surprised at his youth especially since he sings with such depth of emotion and writes lyrics that are almost uncomfortably dark and honest.
“Brother” is just one such example. Corby demonstrates absolute vocal control and emotional intensity as he sings the raw, intimate, melancholy lyrics with an interspersion of high pitched “ooh"s. Honestly, the "oohs” are what draw me to the song as they contain so much sadness and pain while also holding a sense of rebirth and renewal.
“Brother” has also proven a huge commercial success for Corby, winning him the Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (ARIA) award for Song of the Year.
