New Music: Martha Hill – My Future

I was fortunate enough to catch Martha Hill on the opening night of Leeds Festival last year. In front of a rowdy, demob-happy crowd, she bravely played her delicate acoustic set of humanising folk and utterly charmed the tent. Now she’s back with new music, a bittersweet track called My Future.

By Graeme Smith

My Future perfectly captures the feeling of being so miserable in the present that all you can do is imagine a perfect life just over the horizon. It speaks of heartbreak, poverty and a lack of self-confidence, eloquently written and sung emotively against a backdrop of acoustic guitar. It’s such an instantly arresting track, I knew I had to share it.

Originally from Scotland, Martha now lives in Newcastle. She recorded the track there with Bramwell Bronte, a collaborator of Sam Fender. You can give My Future a listen below.
