Matinée release 'Summer Sun' co-written by Chris Geddes from Belle and Sebastian
25 February 2020
’Summer Sun' is the new single from Anglo-Italian four piece Matinée and its produced by Billboard topping producer Tony Doogan and Chris Geddes from Belle and Sebastian.
‘Summer Sun’ is the first single from forthcoming album ‘Event Horizon’, a 10 track neon journey through 80’s influenced, keyboard based, indie-rock. Soaring keyboards and guitars chime with indie lyrics and big hearted, pop choruses.
‘Summer Sun’ is a homage to Orwellian’s books with a love story between 2 young lovers on a Hot Summer day who are trying to forget the current political situation
‘Summer Sun’ is about escapism from a depressing and dark political climate and the need to look towards moons, planets, and stars, searching for a better place that may be can no longer be found on Earth.
The video also has references to Brexit and how the love story between 2 young guys is made challenging by the current political circumstances.
The band Matinée is named after Scotland's very own Franz Ferdinand's hit song The Dark Of The Matinée and struck up a friendship with the band after supporting them in Italy. Italy well and truly embraced the band the support gigs lead to live offers from some major venues around the country, not to mention some huge radio support from national stations at home in Italy.
Matinée were nominated for Best International Act on the Amazing Radio Awards show in 2015 and also played live at the very cool Station Sessions at Kings Cross London, as well as at many other key London venues including Death Disco (Creation Records; Alan McGee's night), Jubilee (Carl Barat's night) and the 100 Club. Last year they played at the Un Altro Festival in Milan, opening for The Lumineers and Daughter. Other support slots include Mystery Jets, The Futureheads, and British Sea Power.
"A accomplished Italian answer to the indie music of the Naughties, focussing on all the best bits, Ferdinand, Cribs, Coral et al… Boss.” - Carl Barat (The Libertines)
“Anthemic indie rock with electronic flourishes. Hints of Franz Ferdinand and the Britpop era abound” - Chris Geddes (Belle and Sebastian)
