Well over three years after the release of his previous single M.T.Hadley follows up with ‘Rattle ’, a beautiful left field pop song written when M.T. Hadley was twenty.
The track has M.T.Hadley imagining he is singing an existential lullaby to a newborn baby, telling them just how terrible life will be. “You will feel nothing but heartache” he sings, “you will see nothing but mistakes / As tragedy blooms.” On the page it’s dark, but M.T. Hadley’s falsetto set over shimmering keys suggest differently. After all, as M.T. Hadley reminds us in the subtitles for the accompanying video also released today, “we should try to share some vocabulary of hope”.
M.T Hadley’s thoughtful introspection and candid lyricism shineslight on the darker parts of life, encouraging us to accept the duality of everything. By finding inspiration in the void M.T. Hadley has arrived with an air of timelessness.
You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day.
If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
