Check out his surreal yet romantic new single...

Matt Maltese has detailed plans for his new album 'Krystal'.

The South London aesthete's debut LP 'Bad Contestant' caused a stir last year, with his unique style finding a devoted cult audience.

New album 'Krystal' continues his creative streak, and it's set to land on November 8th via 7476.

New song 'Rom-Com Gone Wrong' is online now, a breezy, surreal, yet love-lorn piece of songwriting.

The full video was directed by Craig Roberts, the Welsh actor turned film maker best known for his lead role in Submarine.

Matt Maltese said:

“I tried writing some music for one of Craig’s films which inadvertently introduced him to my music and we struck up an online friendship. We realised we both have this kind of awkward sense of humour which lent itself well to a video for 'Rom Com Gone Wrong’.”

“The idea was to create a sort of ‘making of a music video’ music video where I play the part of someone who’s disillusioned with their own music video and doesn’t get on with the director. Basically a music video gone wrong.”

Tune in now.
