Mattiel has returned with a magnetic new single, Those Words, and its towering B-Side Freedom Feels.
Talking about the track, mixed by David Wrench, Mattiel said:
“I think everyone can relate to a song like Those Words – it’s really just about choosing who to give your energy to. If someone isn’t treating you with respect or crosses your boundaries, you don’t owe them anything. It’s an especially good reminder if you’re a person who tends to try to please everyone. Women are taught to do this from a very young age. It’s just not possible to make everyone happy, so you might as well sing and dance those cares away.“
Today the band also premieres the vibrant Those Words video, which was directed, produced and edited by Brown herself. Talking about the video she added:
“We shot this in mid March so it’s very fresh and new energy for us – we are all just so excited to get out there and play shows again. We’re a very close bunch and it’s really just us having a good time, and I think that shines through the whole thing. It feels like the light at the end of the Covid tunnel is starting to shine brighter and brighter, too. We’re almost there.”
Those Words / Freedom Feels will be released as a limited-edition 7-inch in early September. Pre-order it from Mattiel’s Bandcamp page HERE
This Friday, 30th April, also sees Mattiel perform a live stream from The Spirit & Truth Sanctuary in Decatur, Atlanta. Tickets and further details can be found HERE.
