Matt Maltese

Bad Contestant



Released: 8th Jun 2018



Released: 8th Jun 2018


the hotly tipped south London crooner is at his swooning & schmaltzy best for his debut album, full of wit, wonder & humour.


the stark realism of his words help him lyrically stand out amongst his peers; he plays around with words for fun, often conjuring up images of forlorn nights out, apocalyptical sardonic love tales & seedy nightclubs. his lyrics cut through the powerful piano and string-led arrangements that rise & swell around him with each piece falling into place precisely. “Everything Maltese conveys feels like a direct connection to the mind that bore it. It feels filterless, and with the music playing its part perfectly” *** line of best fit.
