It’s been several years since Matthew Dear released a piece of music under his own name (as opposed to one of his many aliases). The timing couldn’t be more perfect for the pensive “Wrong With Us,” which arrives at a moment of mass reflection.
“’Wrong With Us’ came about in a frenzied session with Simian Mobile Disco at their studio in the English countryside,” Dear says. “We started with some modular synths and went from there adding vocals, drums and other odd ends. In the end, we finished four songs in four days, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. It’s a reflection on the state of the world we live in today.”
The track is exclusive to Matthew Dear’s DJ-Kicks, which lands 27th January 2017. “Wrong With Us” is available now digitally, along with pre-orders for the DJ-Kicks album.
