“Silver, is perhaps their strongest release to date; managing to come across as both emotionally fragile yet somehow reassuringly confident” Crack in the Road

“ easily the most confident, accomplished project from the pairing yet Clash

“a coming-of-age that feels both powerful and important from the very first listen.”Gold Flake Paint

“Their music is expansive and epic, considered and dynamic which grows with wonderful organicity as it progresses.” The 405

“I really like the new direction they are going in. Particularly when they play live, it really comes together and sounds fantastic”. John Kennedy, Radio X

Matthew and Me release new single ‘Silver’, taken from their forthcoming EP ‘Startpoint’, out on 18th November via Beatnik Creative. Recorded between their home studio and Deep Litter, Startpoint, the EP was produced by Ben Howard and Eliza Shaddad collaborator Chris Bond.

 

Following on from “luscious, woozy..and remarkable” (Gold Flake Paint) first single ‘Joy’, and the “brisk, muscular” (Clash) ‘Figure’, ‘Silver’ is an intricate and atmospheric display of songwriting prowess. Starting with measured introspection, bursting forth into a triumphant chorus before grinding to a half-time, dense alt-rock riff it is the perfect opener, setting the tone for the EP as a whole.

 

The band is focussed around lead vocalist/songwriter Matthew Board and drummer Lucy Fawcett, who by living and writing in the expansive landscape of South Devon, exist so far from the mainstream that their unique style has grown autonomously. The whole EP’s soundscape is at least partially inspired by the rugged and beautiful Devonshire landscapes and coastline around Start Point.

The confidence which is instilled in the music is also reflected by their recent triumphant performance at the Sea Change Festival in Totnes, along with British Sea Power, TOY, Bo Ningen and more, which lead singer/songwriter Matthew Board and drummer Lucy Fawcett helped to run and curate.

In support of the EP’s release Matthew and Me will be playing a short tour in the autumn taking in their home town of Totnes, Brighton, Bristol and London.
