Matte Blvck has came with a slick haunting single that gives Horror movie directors a sight for sore eyes. Their latest single is called Pure and gives its such an impression of terror yet lyrically talks about overcoming pain. When I’m listening to the track, I can feel like I’m in a room with chains, steel and bits of fire storming in the corner. Even though the impression I see is a fire storm, I can feel the overall change in dynamics throughout the song.
I dig this track by Matte Blvck!
Matte Blvck is an electronic group out of San Diego CA. Producing sounds of sinister pleasures, visual arts and mechanical tinged dance music. The group captures lush dark-synth stylings complimented by gritty industrial anthems, while embodying their affinity for underground techno. Alex Gonzales, Bidi Cobra, and Daniel Corrales serve as the three-piece ensemble. Coming from various influences the trio come together to compliment their vast and scattered ideas to now form their own brand of club aesthetic.
The debut album I’m Waving, Not Drowning is set to release this fall following their forthcoming singles “Pure”, and their ageless rendition of “Stripped” from standout titans Depeche Mode. The record was mostly written during the global-wide shutdown due to Covid-19, and has spawned an introverted yet relatable sound. An album created in isolation touching on topics such as pain, panic and suffering yet conceiving a light at the end of the tunnel. Hence the title of the album, I’m Waving, Not Drowning.
