Martyn is a compelling artist who fuses post-rock inspirations with his own touch. The instrumental unsigned artist is a must hear for anyone who loves Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You and Sigur Rós. The musician hailing from Portishead, has already received positive praise for his remarkable 8 track album release ‘Home’ which saw the light of day in November of last year. The album itself was a breathe of fresh air and illustrates what this artist has to offer. The record made by just one person, sounds that of a 4/5piece band. Each orchestration is simply stunning and accumulates into a triumphant masterpiece.
