Martin Reynolds shares his refreshing new single ‘The Boy’s Got Rhythm’

Drawing from the sounds of the 50s and 60s with a modern spin, Martin Reynolds takes a concept and runs with it on his new track ‘The Boy’s Got Rhythm’, a leg-slapping, singalong song with a jaunty rhythm, country nods and delightful, intertwining acoustic guitar lines. The video is suitably striking, featuring a solo dance routine in an empty theatre that captures the track in a new light.


Discussing the single, Martin Reynolds reveals: “The Boy's Got Rhythm came quite late on in the writing process for the album, it was the last but one song I had written for it. The studio had closed down at this point, but I couldn't get this song out of my head, and I knew that it needed to be on the record, it just sounded so different to everything else and had a certain kind of attitude to it, which probably came from listening to a lot of early Elvis, we're talking the 1950's stuff, the stuff that sounds like it could almost be barbershop. The song itself is really quite tongue in cheek and probably means something completely different to others than what it means to me. it came to me really quickly, just one of those that falls out of the sky.”


Recording his music in lockdown between his home and a studio that became pandemic collateral, Martin’s sincere lyrics and powerful sound is certainly causing a stir.
