MATT ELLIOTT has rather an atypical course... He used to work under the pseudo THIRD EYE FOUNDATION - emblematic figure of the English electronic scene acclaimed for his atypical electro tinted drum' N bass. Since his first albums: “The Mess We Made” (Domino Records) and “Drinking Songs” (Ici d’ailleurs…), Matt Elliott turns to much more folk compositions, forsaking laptop and machines altogether - which will even disappear on “Failing Songs”, to return to more traditional instruments (guitar, piano, violin...).</p>
<p>With his second album, he translates his former works' dark and oppressive atmospheres. "Drinking songs" puts an emphasis on distant voices and ethereal ambiences. Guitars and keyboards are getting softer, almost affectionate, sometimes overwhelmed by drum n' bass beats that carry the song upward. Choirs and echoes give an almost mystical dimension to the album. All the songs hold the audience spellbound.Because it’s really about songs.
