Matisyahu – Sunshine

The theme of summer remains in today’s track of the day, more through wishful thinking than anything else, with Matisyahu’s latest single ‘Sunshine’. Probably the world’s greatest Orthodox Jew reggae fusion artist, Matisyahu has enjoyed mainstream success in both America and mainland Europe, but little is known of the ironically unorthodox artist in the UK. Yesterday saw the free release of the single ‘Sunshine’ from his forthcoming album ‘Spark Speeker’ and if it’s anything to go by, we are all in for a summers treat come mid-July. The track features a seamless fusion of reggae verses and summer pop choruses perched gently on a canvas of springy summer back-beats and bouncy ska licks. Matisyahu’s vocal versatility carries the concoction of styles wonderfully and the joy inducing lyrics cast you away to those dreams of distant shores.
