Matthew And The Atlas – On A Midnight Street

Matthew And The Atlas share the brilliant video for ‘On A Midnight Street’.

The track’s highly topical lyrics stem from Matt Hegarty’s fears about climate change, especially poignant to him as a new father worried about the world his daughter will grow up in. Says Hegarty, “The song is an attempt at writing about climate change from the emotional perspective of being a new father. Trying to understand some of the apathy around it, hopefully without sounding too moralistic”.

‘On A Midnight Street’ has been taken from the ‘Temple’ album, out now via Communion Records.
