Don Mai Shows Artistic Maturity With New Single “Won’t Let You Down”.
Young Australian singer/songwriter Don Mai announces his potential with new single “Won’t Let You Down.” A classic pop single with all the hallmarks of a mainstream hit, “Won’t Let You Down” builds well off of an acoustic-driven guitar riff and then builds beautifully with layered vocals melodies, keyboards, and sweetly simple percussive elements.
Don Mai shows good vocal range and solid lyrical content in a song that could be easily dismissed as bubble gum pop. However, on a deeper listen we find Don Mai’s sincerity and emotional clarity refreshing and honest. The lyrics tell a story about a boy who falls in love with a girl who, despite possibly sharing the same feelings has a cage around her heart. The soulful and emotional overtones of this song are quite sad but convey the point across quite well.
Don Mai is certainly an artist that fans of Ed Sheeran or even 80’s singer/songwriter Tracy Chapman should get familiar with. His 2018 self-titled EP was well received and we can see how this budding starlet is building on his style and walking his own artistic path. Connect with Don Mai on Facebook and Soundcloud.
