Synth-electronic trio Matte Blvck have released new single Bare, which narrates a journey of self-discovery that goes horribly wrong. The band are an electronic group out of San Diego CA known for producing sounds of sinister pleasures , visual arts and mechanical tinged dance music. They spoke with The Fountain about the new single in more depth as well as their plans for the rest of 2020.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Bare?
We’ve gotten amazing complements on the single. We chose Bare as the second single to give our listeners as sneak peek in what’s expected out of our debut album. The song features consistent patterns and sounds heard through out the album.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
The perfect balance between vulnerability and power, delving into the harsh realities of self image against a backdrop of stark, industrial beats.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
We have a new single Monumental coming out October 23rd, shortly after we release our debut LP I’m Waving, Not Drowning. Our fans can expect something new from us on a monthly basis.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
We’ve toured a lot in past with our other projects, it’s hard to pick a favourite spot. Doug Fir lounge in Portland is one of our favourite spots. There’s too many. We’re hoping to play CRSSD Festival in San Diego. It’s arguably the biggest event in our hometown and we’d love to be a part of it.
