Last year, we were lucky enough to host Matt’s talents in The Joiners, however this year he is not visiting Southampton. Despite this, his shows across the UK this month are definitely ones to catch if you can (not just because they align perfectly with the university strikes…), as his performances are always extremely memorable due to his wonderful musicianship and often funky light backgrounds.
Bad Contestant, Matt’s debut album, features some energetic tunes perfect to dance to, like ‘Like A Fish’ but also some entirely soul-crushingly depressing songs, like ‘Less and Less’ (a personal favourite of mine). Krystal similarly satisfies both ends of the spectrum, with funky tunes like ‘Jupiter’ bound to be perfect to dance and move to, whilst ‘When You Wash Your Hair’ showcases Matt’s calming vocals with pretty piano accompaniments. Matt’s humble stage presence combined with the plethora of wonderful tunes will surely satisfy the crowd, and will make for an unmissable night.
