My track of the day comes from the talented Matchstickmen. I’ve been following this Liverpool-based band for a few years now and have always enjoyed their music. They have an impressive back catalogue of albums and EPs. The band’s latest single is “Numb” taken from their upcoming album “From Our Own Ashes”, which is scheduled for release on the 9th of September.
“Numb” has a prog rock sound. It’s heavy yet melodic and fuelled with bold, impassioned lyrics. One of Matchstickmen’s trademarks is that their sound can’t be tied down to any particular genre of rock, but is always different. Their songs seem to dictate the style. From acoustic to heavy rock, this band consistently produce great original music.
