This week we're championing Matt Maltese, a South London crooner hailing from Reading originally. NME described him in the same sentence as Tom Misch, coining the term Schmaltzcore for this kind of sound. We don't agree. Matt's songwriting and smooth at times arid, clever jibing ballads and toe tappers put him in a slightly different place to the others.
It's a belter of an album to listen to when your swooning, wooing, waking up, cry wanking... It covers all bases.
Particular highlights are Nightclub Love and Like a Fish.
