“Match Me” by Cashavelly Morrison sounds like the lovechild of the ’90s alternative rock scene and Sarah McLachlan in its unadulterated poignancy. It’s simplistic, yet complete and rich.
The emotional core of “Match Me” gravitates around the line, “You think my power makes you a coward,” which unfolds into more lyrical and musical layers. The short swelling guitar solo is also nice little touch, helping the song build some extra momentum.
Above all, what stands out is Cashavelly Morrison’s performance – powerful, yet reserved and not over the top; emotional, but not sugary; it gives a lot, but doesn’t try too hard.
