Nov. 4 — Independent rock act, Matt Irie Band released its latest single last month.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Coastal‘ Oct. 13. The song’s musical arrangement is a smooth, relaxed composition whose laid back guitar approach immediately takes audiences back to the reggae/rock sounds of the 90s. The immediate comparisons that come to mind are to acts, such as G. Love and Special Sauce, Dirty Heads, and Sublime. Audiences could even argue that there is an influence from Jack Johnson exhibited here, too.
The band discussed the song’s arrangement in a prepared statement.
“We wanted to deliver a fun & upbeat anthem that we hope everyone can relate to,” the statement reads. “This one is for everyone dealing with too much-unwanted stress, this one’s for you all.”
The song’s lyrical theme matches well with the band’s statement. That is evidenced as band namesake Matt Irie sings about having a “coastal dream” and the welcome feel of the sand and waves. The overall theme is certain to put any listener in a positive mindset, even during the coming cold, winter days.
