Matthew Pinder Has A New Perspective On Life With “Stars”
We all experience life’s valleys and peaks over the years. Though the low points carry discomfort, there’s still the rewarding feeling of finding peace in embracing who you are. First writing these sentiments in 2019, Matthew Pinder navigates the introspective journey of self-growth on his single “Stars,” which is now a part of his EP Seated in the Sun.
This single tells the story of embracing who you are through joyful instrumentation and emotional lyrics. While the tune may seem simple at first, but the energizing beat prompts a build up that transforms into a beautiful and emotional swell eventually bursting into a triumphant ending that leaves you content and at peace. The melody beckons a natural warmth that wraps you up in the crafted lyrics. Though the tune’s origins are rooted in the discomfort of feeling stuck, “Stars” cascades into a glorious anthem meant to inspire.
Matthew Pinder is a Bahamian singer-songwriter who has established a quintessential sound within the indie-folk space over the last few years. First gaining recognition for his viral hit single “Golden Hour” – still one of his most popular releases today with over 2 million streams – he soon followed with the release of the full-length album, Give Me Some Time. Soon after, Pinder took a break from music to focus on his mental health until he was ready to begin on his next project. Working with local studio engineer/producer Sherwood Rahming and past collaborators Mitch Webb and Sara Davis Regan, Pinder was eager to make music “fun” again by making it with people and friends along the way. Nonetheless, fans can still expect his modern flair with the influences of classic singer-songwriters and present-day artists, all melded into a sound completely his own. Pinder’s latest project, Seated in the Sun was released in October 2021.
