A couple of years ago, Richmond, Virginia’s Matthew E. White hit our radar when he released Big Inner, an album of lush, thoughtful, beautifully orchestrated folk-rock. White’s follow-up Fresh Blood is coming in a couple of months, and he’s already dropped a teaser. This morning, White shared “Rock & Roll Is Cold,” the album’s first single. It’s a brisk, playful piece of music with some serious R&B horns and a propulsive piano groove working for it. Check it out below.
Fresh Blood is out 3/9 on Domino.
