A captivating new duo emerges in the form of Matty Carter + Ariel. Two mysterious New York natives who, despite limited information on either, have begun to galvanise conversations around them across the Atlantic, already making the performance bills at SXSW and the Warped Tour. It’s MC+A’s pure sense of feeling and unique sound that has propelled them to growing reputation across America.
The compelling thing is perhaps the real sense that these are two artists coming together with purpose and fire; describing their music as ‘for the underdog and the working class’, their debut release ‘Voices’ – already at over 80K views, conjures both incandescence and morality – two nameless artists fighting the good fight. It’s very much a story for our times. Watch here
Despite their anonymity, Matty Carter + Ariel’s fierce sense of strength have created the kind of cult following usually reserved for the characters within their songs themselves. The good fight and the passion have seen them cultivate a unique virality in the US. Prepare for it to be unleashed over here.
