Egyptian Blue release new single ‘Matador

The band have also shared new UK live dates.

Egyptian Blue have released their new single ‘Matador’. Watch the video, directed by Jonathan Waller, below.

The song follows their recent comeback single ‘Geisha’, as the band continue preparations for their forthcoming debut album.

Speaking about ‘Matador’, Egyptian Blue vocalist Andy Buss has said: “Matador is a remark on the unwanted perils of keeping toxic relationships at an arms length, yet being unwillingly compliant and searching for the exit. I seem to recall the song coming together in a sole session after a 20 minute jam. With some songs you walk out of the practice room feeling excited and strangely liberated. I think that feeling was really captured at the time.”
