Today XS Noize is pleased to premiere ‘Song 26’ by Callum McIntyre. Brighton born songwriter Callum McIntyre’s refusal to compromise is one of the key reasons his storytelling is so universally relatable. Filled with interesting and unique personal details his piano-led approach allows listeners to embrace his intimate lyrics whilst enjoying the voice of an honest and authentic artist.
Whilst influenced by classic singer-songwriters such as Billy Joel and Tom Waits, Callum’s emotive style allows him to stand confidently alongside new voices such as Tom Odell and Bruno Major. What separates him from these contemporaries though, is his unfiltered use of music and lyricism as therapy.
After coming out of a difficult relationship, he found strength and solace in articulating his thoughts and emotions through songwriting. This is evident in the raw and honest nature of his lyrics which explore moments and stories
that he himself has lived. These moments, although intensely personal, are written and
arranged in a manner that all listeners will relate to.
Moving away from the tropes and structure of mainstream pop, Callum paints vivid, expressive images on his upcoming EP through relatable lyrics that allow listeners to find their own stories within the music.
