Wild Domestic are back with their newest music video for “New Year, New Me”. Watch here
About the song, Matt comments:
“‘New Year, New Me’ is about moving on from past rejections and failures and using them as motivation. As far as the video, I wanted to further amplify the idea that I am Wild Domestic.”
Indie/ alt-rock band, Wild Domestic is the brainchild of Matt Carlson. Born in Paraguay, Carlson moved to Charlotte, North Carolina when he was six months old, and it is where he resides to this day. According to Carlson, he knew from a young age that music was his true calling, and according to his family, he has been singing since before he could talk. As a teenager, Carlson began playing an assortment of instruments including guitar, bass, drums and keys, most of which were self-taught. Completely immersed in the arts as a teen, Carlson was involved as an actor in a number of plays and commercials. While attending college, Carlson simultaneously continued his music career. Following stints in several different Charlotte area bands, he made the decision to pursue a solo career and took on the moniker Wild Domestic.
After spending the last few years writing and performing both locally and nationally, Carlson released his self-titled debut EP, WILD DOMESTIC in 2015. The follow up EP, SINGULAR is slated to be released in early 2017. Wild Domestic’s writing, production and performance is a reflection of Carlson’s personal views and voice. His soulful, honest, and sometimes quirky lyrics are underscored by his strong alternative rock background, which is influenced by bands like My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Talking Heads and Arcade Fire. Wild Domestic connects in a fresh way with a broad and progressive audience. Stay up to date with Wild Domestic by visiting WildDomesticMusic.com.
