This is quite exciting,
Birmingham’s Matt Ryder is making seasoned sounds up there in Brum. His sound is as polished as it gets, experienced musicians on the scene would be proud of this track. Breakdown is the first single from his forthcoming EP that he made in his bedroom. The amazing thing is (and I just cannot believe this at all) – He is only 16 years old. Good god! The guy has talent to burn!
I am totally blown away by the maturity and simplicity of his sound. Breakdown is a song with a chirpy, vibrant and bouncy riff that is very uplifting and jolly. The lyrics and vocal tone contradict the back beat and induce the complete opposite emotions for the listener. This is very smart songwriting from the lad and makes the tune become a little diamond of a thing.
This is a stellar debut release from the mercurial talent that is Matt Ryder. I reckon he will be scooped up by a label or two before his debut EP even touches the surface. These kinds of young talents don’t come around too often. We would love to have Matt down to London for one of our showcase events next year.
‘I like to think my music has a message, and hope that people decode their own ideas from the music.’
The Debut Release
This is the first taste of whats to come from him and I’m really excited to hear what else he has in the pipeline. Lovely!
