19 Forever is such a fresh track. Mixing in a number of influences and underpinning it with unexpected bass, percussion and keys, it creates something like I’ve never heard before. Matthew’s vocals are almost lethargic as they deliver a poetic tale of being young and messy.

Fans of hyperpop pioneers like SOPHIE, A G Cook and GFOTY will find a lot to love in Matthew’s sound. You can check out 19 Forever below.
