Finish Line by Matt Bednarsky incorporates rock and pop sensibilities as well as some classic sounds. The thought-provoking lyrics are also a preview of his upcoming fifth studio album. If this is your first exposure to his music, you’ll immediately understand why it’s been used in several TV spots and was used in a promotional movie displayed at the 2021 UN Climate Change Conference.
‘Finish Line’ grabs you with a strong beat right away and has your head bopping to its rhythm. A soft guitar pluck rests above the pounding pace, highlighting the questions that open the singing. As you approach the chorus, a shimmering guitar tone emerges. The song weaves an easy soft rock drive with pop sensibilities to create a consistent melody that draws you through the track. As the guitars begin to grow higher and flow more into the soundscape, the steady push of the percussion keeps you bopping around to the music.
While the rhythm will have you bopping around and flowing through the single, it is Bednarsky’s singing and lyrics that will leave you with a lasting impression. The first verse is jam-packed with questions that make you ponder about the present society. The chorus continues to question, but adds a request to think about where we’re going with what we’re doing. He has this incredible ability to have you thinking about the impact of ongoing innovation while maintaining the engaging enjoyment of his music. His performance, while asking questions and pleading with us, is really infectious, and you will be singing along to the chorus.
