Throughout the last few years, singer and songwriter Matt Maltese has built up a strong and vibrant reputation as a modern day romantic troubadour. His quaint yet captivating croons have led many to compare him to the likes of Jarvis Cocker, playing out the social commentary of today through his own warm and shimmering way. But with last year's lockdowns and general tone of unease wafting throughout the world, he has now looked to hone that uncertainty throughout his third studio album 'Good Morning It's Now Tomorrow', a record that aims to find sense in this new world we have found ourselves in.
But without directly mentioning many of the events these last few years, 'Good Morning It's Now Tomorrow' is more about finding the light at the end of the tunnel and forming a more rose-tinted view of the future ahead. While so many have come out of this experience in a more solemn way, Matt Maltese is putting on a brave face here in the hopes of finding solace within his prose. Each song has a warm and interpretive heart beating throughout, creating a release that could be dissected to fit almost any frame of mind, which only really adds to the allure of this new collection.
He has always been a hard-to-read soul, but for 'Good Morning It's Now Tomorrow', there is a beautiful vagueness to his work that comes across as very appealing. Not looking for anyone to read too much into his lyrics, these songs are meant to be enjoyed in non-distinctive manner, and make for a wonderfully enjoyable listen throughout.
