MATTIS – Loverboy
MATTIS is the moniker for a former punk rocker turned nu-soul singer. Hailing from Copenhagen, he just delivered his debut single Loverboy, a song that sounds like the love child of Rationale and TENDER. Profound and heartfelt vocals immediately stand out over a perfectly balanced mix of subtle guitars, hand claps and pounding electronic percussions.
Speaking on the track, he said: “‘Loverboy’ is a personal story of mine, from around 3 years ago, where i had broken up with my girlfriend at that time, lost my apartment and was at a crossroad musically and in life generally. I lived in basements, studios, and friends couches. I didn’t feel any purpose. I didn’t feel connected with anyone. I felt alone, kinda like a wolf that is no longer a part of the pack.”
