If Parliament (or Congress) of the Indie Universe were considering legislation to require bands to include at least four members, “Made To Find You” would be strong evidence against the position that a quartet is needed to achieve a rich, powerful sound.
“Made To Find You” is a vocals-driven track from London’s Belle Mt (pronounced “Belle Mont,” similar to the surname of its frontman). But the instruments hold their own while creating a soundscape that is initially sparse and soon lushly layered. Each member of the trio is a multi-instrumentalist and also contributes to the vocals. They are Matt Belmont (vocals, guitar, piano), Ben Worsley (electric guitar, bass, synth, vocal harmonies), and Chris Burgess (drums, SPD trigger pads, vocal harmonies).
The guitar work in “Made To Find You” isn’t note-synched to the syllables in the lyrics; instead creating a foundation on which the vocals and synth ride. For the percussion, it sounds as though the drumsticks strike a metallic rim more often than a drumskin. The wood-to-metal rhythm adds to the attractiveness of the track.
In describing the background of the song, Londoner Matt Belmont stated:
“’Made To Find You’ was the first song I wrote on my first trip to Nashville to write new music for this project. It was a couple of days before I could get into the studio to write with Femke (Femke Weidema - Producer) and so I sat at this old piano in my AirBnb all day and came up with the chord pattern and the arpeggiated chorus melody in preparation for the session. When I got into the session with Femke she heard that arpeggio and was like ‘That's the chorus! Now let’s write the verses.’ The song is without a doubt one of the most upbeat I've ever written and it make an awesome show opener in the live set; we're really excited for this song to come and complete the first volume of Belle Mt songs." “Made To Find You” by Belle Mt
