Rolling Stone magazine aptly likened him to Antony Hegarty and androgynous-era Bowie, but for this 3rd LP Gallantry’s Favorite Son, our bearded angel reveals himself more confidently, sometimes even joyfully, weaving connectors between Scott Walker, Devendra Banhart; Council-era Paul Weller and Burt Bacharach.
Goose bumps still arrive regularly; indeed Matthew’s emotive quiver still “cuts like lovingly administered razors” [Sydney Morning Herald].
Administering to our innermost cores, Matthew elixir is a mix of dark cabaret, restorative folk and gently caressing ballads.
Little wonder Rhythms Mag dubbed Matthew “Mesmerising,” while “Extremely Beautiful,” “Heartbreaking,” “Stunning, Haunting,” “Hypnotising… Gorgeous… Captivating” are some of the descriptors proffered by other reviewers.
Clearly, Matthew’s emotional investment in songs is huge; they’re a heart to heart exchange with listeners, continually unfolding like a diary whose secrets are shared with an intimate circle of friends.
