BERRIES – ” Prime “

Posted: July 12, 2022 in MUSIC

The third album for Matt Berry’s pseudo-eponymous project. Loss and desire take centre stage as Berry delves deep into 21st century malaise, crafting densely layered songs which project an unshakable yearning for deliverance from the world’s shortcomings.

Each track extends an outstretched palm towards universal connection, blending a complex mix of pop hooks, rock swagger, and psychedelia into dejected populist anthems.

On his lead single “Prime”, Berry channels the simple pop mastery of Lindsay Buckingham. Getting older, I’m getting older, he restlessly croons as he takes jabs at the moral laziness of aging millennials, expressing his yearning for a return to vitality and conviction.

With High Flying Man, Berry embraces undying love in the face of isolation. Daring to want more life becomes a spiritual rallying cry against a world that has failed to make life either meaningful or beautiful. At their core, these songs are not about revolution, but they are about the faith that gives something like revolution a purpose in the first place.
