Matthew and Me
Matthew and Me
Fri 26 Jun 2015 BBC Introducing Stage
Supported by BBC Introducing in Devon

Like a lot of frustrated songwriters, Matthew Board first formed a band in order to fully realise the potential of his songs, trying to find a way to get them to sound to an audience the way they did in his head. He formed Matthew and Me in his native Totnes, inspired by sonic architects such as Mogwai and Sigur Rós to create songs that arrive with fine details and whisper-soft filigrees before launching skyward into huge melodic noise, as the musical microscope becomes a telescope.

The band became firm favourites of BBC Introducing in Devon, who have been playing their songs since 2013. But momentum really started to gather for the band when they released Patterns, a single that was very warmly welcomed by, among others, Mark Radcliffe at BBC 6 Music, and Huw Stephens at BBC Radio 1. The follow-up, Kitsune is even whooshier, shooting the band even further into the heavens, and leaving Devon far behind.
