Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts drop their self-titled debut album with a bang, this album is a rich collection of fine songwriting that is impossible to ignore. From the album opener ‘Black Diamonds’ you know right away what this album is all about. Killer riffs, savvy lyrics and glorious vocals all delivered on a beautifully produced album that announces their arrival with great aplomb.
Matt is no stranger to the music scene having laid down the foundation to a rich career in AOR / Rock bands in his early years as well as The Colour Of Noise with Little Angels guitarist Bruce John Dickinson, so with a hefty foundation laid it was no surprise that a solo project would follow and one of notable quality too. Hence an album which from the off is melodically rich and easy on the ears. Matt’s vocals are exquisite across the album as a whole and he has surrounded himself with a group of musicians who equally know how to translate his ideas from pen and paper to a sonic rollercoaster that no one wants to get off.
There are a plethora of styles and influences across this fine album and you find yourself rocking away at the ease in which each and every song just wraps itself around you and envelopes you in its rich melodic content.
Out now, Matt Mitchell & The Coldhearts could be one of the finest releases of the year.
