“Volatile is a song i think most people could relate to. Its essentially about unhealthy relationships. Not necessarily violent ones but those types of relationships you had in your teens. You would argue then make up then argue again and you would never know why you did it. Unfortunately some people go beyond that for example domestic abuse. I hope this song opens a few peoples eyes to the situation and gives people strength to get out and find help”
Volatile is the 3rd single from Matt and is in stark contrast to his previous work. Matt has been working with Producer/Engineer Bill Sjulin who owns Swedespot Studios in Cincinnati, Ohio.
“Ive found Bill to be a breath of fresh air as people know im a singer/songwriter so i tend to produce melancholy acoustic music, theres nothing wrong with that but Bill can see the angle. He often turns my songs into the Bluesy, guitar rich music it was always meant to be.
Matt and Bill including a host of other musicians are currently working on Matts EP which is due for release mid January.
In the meantime enjoy his latest offering on soundcloud.
The single is out now on all digital platforms including itunes and spotify.
