No need to be ashamed of The Streets Allan Smithy, it’s a great song! With an approach to songwriting I can fully get behind (take the dog for a walk, get a coffee, chase runaway dog through streets, let inspiration flow), Mr Smithy AKA Matt Amery has come up with a debut track full of easy breezy charm and a distinctly suburban sunshiny vibe.
There’s a Scary touch to The Streets as well, what with recording it in Melbourne with Tom Iansek and getting Jo Syme along to add some backing vocals. Add in Sydney’s Liam Judson (Cloud Control, The Laurels) doing the mixing and you’ve got yourself a winning team on board right there.
Grab your dog, put on your headphones and go for walk while listening to The Streets:
