Review of False Alarm by Matoma & Becky Hill
False Alarm is a mesmerising track from Matoma’s album Hakuna Matoma. Some ear defying electronic sounds have been conjured up together to create a single that builds through various stages of your listening capabilities, from a Major Lazor style high pitched electronic sound to cut back elements that show off the brilliant vocals.
Matoma shows off his undoubted ability on False Alarm, which is a good indication of where the album is going. Add to that the stunning vocals from Becky Hill and the track feels like a complete mainstream hit, but one that challenges the listener.
Becky Hill really needs to make the breakthrough as she has amazing ability that deserves commercial recognition. False Alarm is just another fine example.
