Biography

“Think Richard Hawley with a Twin Peaks filter, songs for early hour insomniacs and teens stumbling home from nights that etch into the conscience.” DIY

Matt Maltese is a 20 year old singer and writer of wry modern ballads. Now based in South London, he's fully immersed himself in the local emerging music scene, from playing shows at local venues, such as Brixton Windmill to collaborating with the likes of Alex Burey on his first EP and Hugo White (Maccabees) on his most recent single ‘Vacant In The 21st Century’.

Musically, Matt Maltese takes cues from a range of influences from Leonard Cohen, Jarvis Cocker, to Father John Misty and Angel Olsen. While lyrically the topics are just as heavy in tone as his idols, Matt adds a great crescendo to his quiet musings. “A charging colossus of feeling, summing up his frustrations, anger and contemplations about society as it is today”. Matt describes his songs as “having moments of sentimentality often covered by a wry social critique of the notions of love/politics… and I want to achieve that same balance”.

His most recent release Vacant In The 21st Century / Strange Time encapsulates that idea of part social commentary, part tragi-comedic love.
