New Music: Matilda

No week goes by without introducing some outstanding Scandinavian talent, so today it’s the turn of Swedish newcomer Matilda.

With an energised take on melancholic electro-pop, ‘Imaginary Friend’ is a song that slowly builds in intensity, setting the scene for Matilda’s distinctive vocals to shine through.

“This song is about me feeling invisible in relationships, but still being a safety blanket for someone. I’ve always been the one that is there for people and I’m that one who is needed in their life but always in a hidden way. I felt like I was an embarrassment, like an imaginary friend.”
