Matt McGuiness And The MLC has released a double-A single of new tracks Thank You For The News and Feels A Lot Like Love, ahead of a UK tour in April and May.
Recorded at Piggyback Studios and produced by Paul Miro Thank You For The News is described as, “fake news, personal politics and the finger pointing self righteous, all set to a harmonious tune”.
With lyrics referencing the rise in far right politics, misinformation and manipulation online, and the sense of repeating the worst of modern history it is with the wise weariness of acoustic blues to which it is set.
No less harmonious Feels A Lot Like Love is a lament of the longing for love, the curse as much as the blessing of being in love, and as a companion piece to Thank You For The News an implicit reminder that peace and love may well be something we need to hold tight to in these times.
Matt McGuiness And The MLC will place the Bookcafe in Derby with Scribble Victory on 21 April 2017 as part of a UK tour.
