Emerging singer, Matt Ryder has released his latest single, “Feel,” a track dedicated to growing-up and looking forward to the future armed with hope and excitement for better times amongst a weird world. 

Matt explained what the track meant to him – “This track was mainly a reference to growing towards the next few years, the end of teenage life. Everything was beginning to change and things were becoming more exciting and parties more natural, that bitching and the ‘he said she said’ began to stop and people actually just enjoyed themselves, it was exciting.

Making his beats and writing his lyrics in his bedroom, Ryder’s lo-fi atmospheric approach to dance-inflected indie sees his latest sounds stand-up next to the work of Mura Masa and Låpsley. Both invoke an alternative spirit while drawing on rich pop melodies and underground references. 

Today’s release of “Feel” and recent releases “Not The Same” & “Soundless Motion”  follows the young producer’s debut body of work, the 50 FT EP, which was released late last year. Helmed by the introspective ballad “Further”, the collection sees Ryder at home in the role of indie troubadour as well as a brooding DIY experimentalist with tracks like “Soft Cell” and “50FT” showcasing his more leftfield work.
