MATT CORBY – MONDAY
ARIA award winning musician Matt Corby has released his new track ‘Monday’ leading up to his highly anticipated debut album due for release in early 2016. After the 6 x platinum track ‘Brother’ and 4 x platinum ‘Resolution’ Matt Corby is one of Australia’s favourite acts.
“It has been about two years since I released any music – I guess I needed to spend that time learning how to practically play, on each instrument, what i would regularly hear in my head. Enough time has now passed now for me to clear my head of everything that I’ve done before, reboot and have the balls to do it again.”
‘Monday’ is everything Matt Corby is loved for: simple and emotional music that is unique to his own sound. ‘Monday’ starts with layering vocal harmonies added one at a time with the accompaniment of a simple beat on sticks. The haunting introduction sets the mood for the rest of the song with Corby’s rough and rustic sounding vocals serenading throughout.
Corby effortlessly showcases his incredible vocal abilities throughout the track with the simple backing of only vocal harmonies and percussion. ‘Monday’ is filled with emotion and dynamic that is so unique to Corby.
Matt Corby perfectly executes his new track ‘Monday’ and if this track is anything to go by, his debut album will be a sure hit.
