What a treat! Not discounting the usual amazing groups we get to speak to on a weekly basis that often stem from Singapore or Malaysia, this week we travel further north of the equator and get to know a Thai group that describe their genre as Melancholic Stadium Rock, one that we haven't come across on Asian Pop Radio before.
Sonically unpredictable, Mattnimare takes their audience on a journey that passes through melancholy and anger to bliss and contentment. Whilst other rock bands simply shred and riff, Mattnimare are dedicated to producing cinematic soundscapes awash with the blood, sweat and tears that describe the peaks and troughs of modern life.
This is soul-searching rock direct from the streets of Bangkok. The group consists of:
The group have also an impressive collection of awards. This year alone they have picked up the Best New Artist award at the 28th Season Awards, Best Song Recording – 28th Season Awards for single “รอยต่อ – Coming of Age” and Best Album – 14th Komchadluek Awards (2017) for Album “The Regime” and have experienced a huge level of success with promotions around their track 'Venus' which you can view below..
