LISTEN & SHARE: Matt Maltese - "No One Won The War"
"The South London artist’s flipside from his Donald Trump & Theresa May theatrical/surrealist fanfic contemplates the complexities & futility of the human condition through a classic form of balladry."
- Impose

"As The World Caves In" taps into the sense of despair felt by many following the outcome of the U.S. election and Britain's E.U. referendum in 2016 and adds a sense of melodrama and beauty."
- The Fader

"In the midst of chaos, Matt Maltese (...) feels like a breath of fresh air and the ideal soundtrack for these reflective moments."  - Pigeons & Planes

“Think Richard Hawley with a Twin Peaks filter, songs for early hours insomniacs and teens stumbling home from nights that etch into the conscience.” - DIY

Matt Maltese has shared, via Impose, his second single of 2017 entitled "No One Won The War", produced by The Maccabees Hugo White. When speaking about the track Matt states,"We lovely humans seem to be on an eternal hamster wheel of conflict and reparation. And nobody wins. Not the people at the bottom or the people at the top." "No One Won The War" is the B-side of a Café Bleu Recordings / Atlantic Records release alongside the previously released A-side "As The World Caves In".

At the age of 20 years old, Matt Maltese is already fully embedded in South London’s thriving music circle. Last year alone, he hosted his own residency in Brixton whilst playing alongside hotly-tipped local acts such as HMLTD, Goat Girl, Fish and Shame. The latter add to an already eclectic collection of artists who have influenced Matt Maltese in some way - the heavy tones of Leonard Cohen, the dirty wit of Jarvis Cocker, and the social commentary of fellow Londoners King Krule and Loyle Carner. These influences place further emphasis on the sense of political unrest that underpins Matt's rich and undeniably accessible songwriting.

With two sold out shows at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters on the record, and performances for exponentially growing crowds both at home and abroad, Maltese is ready to kick off a UK/EU tour, supporting The Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser. Matt will cap that run with his biggest headline show to date at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, on March 29th, before opening for The Maccabees in Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle as they prepare for their huge farewell shows.
