Matt Goss: “Red Flares” (Preview)
Ladies and Gentlemen…
… Matt Goss is back and he’s kickin’ brand new flava in ya ear!
Alright, so, he’s already been back but, stay with me, because, after an interlude, (indicative of his meticulous attention-to-detail), the eagerly-awaited single, “Red Flares” is a-go, for iTunes pre-order, from today, and full release, this Friday!
From this morning’s teaser, “Red Flares” is hallmark ‘Gossy’, with all of his trademark creative flair… think, lyrically-driven and hook-laden, with a lush topline melody and deliciously tight-knit harmonies, which we have come to know, love, expect and respect…
However, in fashioning the dreamily aspirational Palms Studios production against a backdrop of R&B, we can hear that Matt has taken a slick and studied, successful sidestep away from the “tattoos and tuxedoes” facet of his extensive musical repertoire…rather, melting into open-necked Hawaiian shirts and snazzy snapbacks!
Married to the metaphoric ‘love S-O-S’, are surface hi-hats, skipping as lightly as a stone along the river of a driving bass, the sonic resonance, of which, is mirrored-to-perfection, by the conviction with which Matt delivers his message and will, surely, distinguish this summertime offering from other releases.
That said, “Red Flares” is a definitive, smooth gift-of-a-groove, for the morning, night and afternoon, destined for sing-a-long radio airplay, chilling in the club or up-close-and-personal, slow-dancing in the living room… You name it, this organic, Pop-R&B hybrid, (pre-cursor to an ace-of-an-upcoming album), is a cross-genre track that dares to, and does, have it all, and I defy you not to be lured into its brilliance, either, before the day is out, or the pre-order made, and this impressive soundtrack-of-the-summer is downloaded or despatched, straight to you!
