‘Somedays’ by Mike Brew, which also showcases the talent of Steph Whelan, is a joy to listen to from the getgo. The song was written by Mike Brew, and Steph was brought along for the voyage, and she melts our ears with lovely backup vocals. Nonetheless, without Mike’s calming vocal talent, the track would not be quite the gem it is. He isn’t a post-genre music trailblazer as such, but he combines numerous sounds into one, giving him an edge that will carry him far.
Mike Brew’s ‘Somedays’ is only his second tune accessible for streaming, but it soars, leaving him with a manageable backlog. Furthermore, it benefits from back-to-back performances, and each time it does, it brings something fresh to the fore. It’s a sign that this is a track that will stick around for a while, and hitting replay doesn’t feel like a chore. Instead, with each playtime, it improves and expands.
Mike, who is currently residing in Liverpool, is swiftly spreading his wings and attracting followers from all over the United Kingdom. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out why. He brings new vigour to music that has been missing for a long time. Brew has an independent element to his performance, which isn’t technically underground but it’s raw, and the energy he exudes is remarkable.
It’s difficult to predict what to expect from future releases because Mike hasn’t released much thus far. However, if this one is any indication, we should be in for a treat with his next. His next of which will likely come shortly, given the buzz surrounding this one.
