Mixing important life lessons with warm soundscapes and pop sensibilities, artist Finn Matthews unveils his new track, “Beautiful Stranger”. The artist looks to the worlds of bedroom pop, R&B, rock and even gospel for his latest tune as he refuses to be defined by genres, meaning that listeners can indulge in the irresistibly unique sounds dreamed up by the artist. And, with messaging on the temporary nature of life at the song’s core, the heavenly and melodic nature of Matthews’ vocals gain a poetic depth.
“The song is about the feeling of freedom that comes when you don’t attach yourself to the things around you, allowing yourself to experience people and things without feeling threatened by the idea of not having it forever,” explains the artist when discussing the meaning behind his latest song. “Things in your life are always going to come and go, and this song is dedicated to being completely present in each moment.”
With a grainy music video featuring Matthews trapped in a box room whilst being observed by an enchanting watcher accompanying the song, it is made all the more infectious. And, as the artist looks towards touring in the Autumn, it is fair to say that the release of his new single is just the beginning of a wildly successful year for him.
