On Record

Conscious artist and abolitionist Indigo Mateo offers up smooth new R&B record “Restart,” that highlights the familiar feeling of looking back a little too fondly on a toxic relationship. With the addictive single, Indigo knows it’s completely natural to wish things had turned out different, pleading “I want us to start over.”

"There’s really no way to sugar coat it -- “Restart” is actually one of the more toxic songs I’ve written. While writing this song, I was using my imagination to romanticize a toxic relationship I had. Sometimes there are pieces of denial we hold on to instead of fully letting someone go. This song embodies the headspace one might be in when considering all the other possibilities within a connection. I want people to know it’s okay to fully feel their feelings. I think that’s what my music and this song is about. Not shaming ourselves, but fully expressing our hearts, and looking at ourselves and our possible choices from there." - Indigo Mateo
