We recently got sent the new single by rising singer-song writer Maddox Jones called Worlds Gone Mad.
Maddox Jones is already on his way to becoming a household name having already received praise from the likes of SPIN, American Songwriter, BBC, Record Of The Day and iHeart Radio. His EP climbed its way to #4 on the iTunes UK Singer/songwriter chart and the title track rose to number 11 in the Music Week commercial pop club charts. "World's Gone Mad", is a track influenced by the hardships our world finds itself in, but with an eye on the positive and should raise a much-needed smile.
The last 12 months have not been the easiest for anybody and the lyrics in this song epitomise the stance of a lot of people during these very challenging times. There is always that someone that's there for you 'even when the worlds gone mad' and I think that after this pandemic is over and the easy times and day to day life comes back a song like Maddox's will make us remember the people who have been there for us during the last year.
The song itself is very anthemic and has a really good rise and fall. I really like the tone of Maddox' voice, it really gives the song more of an edge and how the song is constructed builds a lot of tension and makes you want to listen till the end.
I can see this song being a festival favourite, as the powerfulness of the chorus and a live band will definitely give you that goose bump moment.
Maddox is a new name to us here at The Unsigned Reviewer and its a name we are definitely going to be keeping an eye on. He is definitely going to be one to watch for the year a head that is for sure.
