Within “Left Your Mark,” a barely lit ballad, Mathew V is as a spirit in the night, a fragility trembling off his lips. “When I walk the outer circle, I never knew how hurtful places could be – but it’s changing me,” he weeps. Fluorescent harmony rustles around him, like purple smoke rising to the west. Such restraint is refreshing, and you feel every single pain Mathew V has endured.
