Hot on the heels of supporting Bastille on their worldwide tour and featuring on Wilkinson’s new single , singer songwriter Matt Wills releases Emily and announces a headline show at London’s Omeara (on 25th May).
Emily was premiered on Radio 1 last night by Abbie McCarthy standing in for Huw Stephens (listen back from 1 hour in http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08gwr0c), and follows the release of Matt’s Hurricane and Set YouFree EPs. Showcasing a new side Matt Wills’ signature style, Emily sees him layer sincere, heart-felt lyrics over a fusion of lush electronica and a subtle piano melody to create something original, touching and undeniably compelling.
Matt’s upcoming headline show at London’s Omeara on 25th May follows support slots on Bastille’s current worldwide tour and Sigala’s recent UK tour.
Matt Wills isn’t like the rest. While he sharpened his lyrical barbs in freestyle rap battles as a teenager, he cites the likes of Ben Howard, the 1975, Jamie T and The Kooks as his main influences. Lyrically, he’s a songwriter who pours romance and vitriol into his songs in equal measure. Musically, he’s an artist who likes to flex sonic boundaries, seeking out an eclectic range of studio collaborators and offbeat soundscapes.
This approach has certainly won the Fender Guitars endorsed Matt Wills some influential fans – from Bastille’s Dan Smith and Kooks front-man Luke Pritchard through to Maverick Sabre, Devlin and Halsey.
