New Video Release: Matt Wills “Wallflower”

Singer-songwriter Matt Wills is a singer-songwriter who pours romance and vitriol into his songs in equal measure and seeks out collaborators from the worlds of electronic music and grime to fuse his sound guitar compositions into something new. Since the 2016 release of his debut EP, Hurricane, Matt has garnered across-the-board acclaim by critics and championed by everyone from Skrillex, The Kooks, Halsey, and Foxes. Matt Wills has also featured on the latest single from Drum n’ Bass superstar Wilkinson, (We Will Be) and supported Bastille on their recent world tour. Now, he’s parlayed his acclaim to his full-length debut album, Cigarettes & City Lights.
It’s an album that follows a lyrical theme of turning weaknesses into strengths: “I wanted to just show that every vice – be it cigarettes, alcohol, sex or those little Reese’s Pieces things with the peanut butter – is just a release some sort of chemical in your body that makes you want more.” explains Matt. “We are all addicted to something. I wanted to show the little bit of darkness in something beautiful.”

The lead single is opulent and velvety with lush synths and melancholic lyrics. You can watch the brand new single, Wallflower below.

You can pre-order Wills’ forthcoming debut album, Cigarettes & City Lights, which will be released by Virgin EMI on 21st July.
