Matthew and Me – Figure

Matthew and Me

Matthew and Me

South Devon duo, Matthew and Me is comprised of lead vocalist/songwriter Matthew Board, and drummer Lucy Fawcett.

They have just shared ‘Figure’, a slightly more robust track than ‘Joy’ (which drew comparisons to Mogwai and Sigur Rós), with its 90’s indie rock sensibilities that offers immediate “light relief”.

‘Figure’ has been taken from their new EP, ‘Startpoint’, which is has been produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Eliza Shaddad) and is due for release on 18 November via Beatnik Creative.
