Matt Simons’ has released the incredible new video for current single, ‘Open Up’, as the track continues to grow at radio and streaming, picking up considerable UK support from Radio 2, amongst others, rising across European airplay charts (Top 20 Germany) and reaching over 2 million streams and counting.
Inspired by Matt’s single and album artwork, the innovative video for ‘Open Up’, directed by Dano Cerny, features Matt singing to camera amongst a series of visual collages featuring different individuals and couples struggling with themselves or within a relationship. The faces emote different emotions and, as the video and song builds, are combined with symbolic images – tears are replaced with waterfalls, and a tongue replaced with a cactus. These collages morph and shift before the video closes and the couples are revealed.
‘Open Up’ is the latest release from his forthcoming 12-track album, ‘After The Landslide’. The Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist’s third longplayer will be released 5th April 2019 on [PIAS]. Also included in the album is ‘Dust’ his collaboration with the hotly-tipped Betty Who.
