Paper Idol is the genre-bending pop project of LA-based artist and auteur Matan KG. The music weaves dance music and alternative into “something unique and utterly disarming” (Beats per Minute), with storytelling that blurs the line between reality and fantasy, optimism and delusion.
Nothing captures this the best that the new taste of his upcoming album, “James Bond” is a funky drive track that’s both catchy and upbeat while subtly capturing the swag and sassyness of the 007 agent and the groove of its early entries, especially those by Moore.
About the song, Idol comments “James Bond is the third chapter of the story in my upcoming EP, Mania Days. It’s a dark comedy about a musician who’s mistaken for a spy and captured by a bloodthirsty double agent. The James Bond films have so many ridiculous tropes, so it was fun to pull apart the story and turn it on its head”
