Matthew & Me Short Info

Titanic yet ethereal, chaotic yet haunting, Matthew and Me create alternative pop like no other band. Their songs see beginnings of contemplative hush transform into leviathan choruses, capable of filling cathedrals. Lead singer, Matthew Board’s haunting vocals evoke a magical quality to their music, adding an otherworldly layer to the band’s sound.

Forming in the small town of Totnes, in the heart of South Devon, Matthew and Me began life as a vehicle for Matthew Board to materialise songs he’d written. Over time the band became an inseparable unit of friends, gradually captivating more and more music lovers in the South West and beyond.

Matthew and Me release new EP 'Startpoint' via Beatnik Records in November 2016. Recorded between their home studio and Deep Litter the EP was produced by Ben Howard and Eliza Shaddad collaborator Chris Bond.

“Their music is expansive and epic, considered and dynamic which grows with wonderful organicity as it progresses.” The 405
