matt harding  'commitment'

Brilliantly understated scuzzy electronic folk.

listen listen to matt harding interview feature

Matt Harding sits alone in his bedroom with his four-track and makes music that is everything Daniel Bedingfield isnít - sexy, understated and elegant. Plus it makes me feel like Iím back in my mumís womb. He combines the spacious electronics of Cornelius with scuzzy folk country, making it sound like the most natural thing in the world. Leave It Up To You is a hazy, lazy coo of a song Ė all reverbed harmonicas and morphine-glazed vocals - while his bruised instrumentals are both haunting and celestial (Afternoons In December). This LP marks him out as a truly auspicious talent. (9/10) Kim Taylor Bennett 17 October 03

Matt Harding Ė Commitment, released 20 October 03 on Moshi Moshi Records.
