If Prettier Than Matt has a motto that describes them best, it is diversity and versatility combined with musical ability. The likeable duo have made a name for themselves in the Carolinas with a mixture of rock ‘n’ roll energy and acoustic accessibility that allows them to play in many different places, events, and situations and still appeal to a wide audience. They’re Americana, pop, rock, and more on the newly released album Better Left Said, which features lead single “Anymore.”
The folk-Americana sounding opener “Anymore” uses a gently plucked rhythm as the vehicle for a lament over a past relationship that also includes serious self-reflection anyone in those shoes can relate to, while “Already Gone” isn’t the Eagles classic but a similarly singable verse and chorus, the kind of country hit Martina McBride used to score with regularity on the charts.
