“This song’s a loving question mark,” Matt says. “Why we are what we are, and think and feel the way we do, is an unanswerable question that we can only be in awe of sometimes.”
“A lot of this [new] record is escapism,” he continues. “I’ve had to find more meaning out of the small parts of life. I want this record to celebrate the theatre in all the small things. It’s so cheesy to say it, but I think life is best when you try to make the ordinary extraordinary.
“In many ways this album is me simply being in awe of everything and confused but at peace. I never want to sound hopeless or like I get it, because I don’t. Life feels like a search but that’s the whole point.”
