Matt Maltese has shared, via Impose, his second single of 2017 entitled “No One Won The War”, produced by The Maccabees Hugo White. It’s a politically charged hit, a punch more likely, to the senses and sensibilities of our social situation.

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”.

The track is a perfect example of the swagger with which Maltese approaches his music. With a daring, snarling wit and a heavy tone, Maltese can be political music without sound conceited – that is an impressive feat. We suggest you keep your eye on Matt Maltese, he’s definately worth listening too …..Produced by The Maccabees’ Hugo White, the track follows Maltese’s acclaimed 2016 single “Vacant In The 21st Century.” “As The World Caves In” will come out as the A-side of a Café Bleu Recordings / Atlantic Records release alongside yet to be unveiled B-side track “No One Won The War.”
In “As The World Caves In,” Maltese tells a tongue-in-cheek story featuring Theresa May and Donald Trump, who decide to spend one last night of romance together before triggering atomic warfare. “Hopefully it comes across romantic, sexy, but also sinister and stupid,” explains Matt. “It goes without saying but everything’s a bit sinister and stupid in 2017.”
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.
