CO-WRITTEN BY CHRIS GEDDES FROM BELLE AND SEBASTIAN, (WHO JOINS THE BAND LIVE ON KEYBOARDS) ‘EVENT HORIZON’ IS THE NEW ALBUM FROM ANGLO-ITALIAN BAND MATINEE
"A accomplished Italian answer to the indie music of the Naughties, focussing on all the best bits, Ferdinand, Cribs, Coral et al… Boss.” - Carl Barat (The Libertines)
“Anthemic indie rock with electronic flourishes. Hints of Franz Ferdinand and the Britpop era abound” - Chris Geddes (Belle and Sebastian)
LABEL: Neon Tetra Records / IMPACT DATE: 27th March 2020 / GENRE: Indie, Electro, Rock / FORMAT: Digital, CD, Vinyl
‘Event Horizon’ is a 10 track neon journey through 80’s influenced, keyboard based, indie-rock. Soaring keyboards and guitars chime with indie lyrics and big hearted, pop choruses.
Matinée are named after Franz Ferdinand's hit song The Dark Of The Matinée, and they struck up a firm friendship when Matinée supported Franz Ferdinand on their Italian tour.
Italy well and truly embraced Matinée and the support gigs lead to live offers from some major venues around the country, not to mention some huge radio support from national stations at home.
Matinée were nominated for Best International Act on the Amazing Radio Awards show in 2015 and also played live at the very cool Station Sessions at Kings Cross London, as well as many other key London venues including Death Disco (Creation Records; Alan McGee's night), Jubilee (Carl Barat's night) and the 100 Club.
Last year they played at the Un Altro Festival in Milan, opening for The Lumineers. Other support slots include Mystery Jets, The Futureheads, and British Sea Power.
