On his new single «Mine!», genre-bending pop singer-songwriter Matty Marz speaks to these concerns.
A song three years in the making, «Mine!» is about the consuming feeling’s of desire & anxiety at the hands of a blossoming relationship.
The initial idea for «Mine!» was sparked by these intense guitar chugs & syncopated drum sequences that start the song back in 2017, with work on the single continuing throughout the past three years. The pacing of the drums and honest reflection of the lyrics make for a steady stream of consciousness like effect.
Through the various edits, changing concepts and rewrites, «Mine!» signifies the start of what Matty believes to be a beautiful & prosperous artistic period. Delving deep into Prince-esque glittery romance territory, «Mine!» sees Matty blend new wave sensitivities on a track with inviting vocals, rousing beats and a pinch of glam rock subtleties for good measure.
With production, engineering and visuals handled by Marz along with John Imbesi and Stephan Stanzione, Marz looked to bring some sequins and platform shoes to 2020. «I knew I wanted it to be half way between a David Bowie song and modern synth nu wave», says Marz to LGBTQ Music Chart, when speaking about the song’s sonic influence and structure.
«Mine!» it’s catchy tune you need to take a listen to. It’s just minutes before it’s out and you can be obsessed of this catchy tune.
