Rising songwriter Matilda Mann has shared her hushed new song 'Stranger (for now)'.
Fresh from supporting Holly Humberstone at her standout London show, Matila Mann has laid out details for a new EP.
Out on September 24th, 'Sonder' was crafted during lockdown, and it's an attempt to cultivate empathy and absorb the inter-connecting relationships between people.
"'Sonder' means; the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own," she explains in a press note. "For me, this was something I realised while in the middle of lockdown. I had all the time in the world to take a step back and see how other people lived their lives, in a way I hadn’t thought of before."
"I named the EP 'Sonder' because each song was either written about someone else, or for someone else. All the tracks were written this year, and I was writing a lot for friends going through a hard time and trying to make a song they could relate to..."
'Stranger (for now)' is beautifully simple, with its restrained melody interwoven around lyrics that speak of a gentle curiosity in the lives of others.
