MP3 of the Day (and more!) #304: Matthew P

By on Wednesday, 9th March 2011 at 10:00 am

Matthew P is a new singer/songwriter I’ve just gotten wind of. He’s from Suffolk, and judging from the title track of his new EP, ‘The Breakfast Song’, he has a laidback, Jack Johnson kind of approach. But I get the feeling from his quirky lyrics – reminiscent of Darwin Deez, just less wacky – that he must be a completely disarming fellow, more boy next door.

Listen to / download ‘The Breakfast Song’ and watch the promo video for it below; I almost mistook the Asda where this was filmed for an American Costco warehouse supermarket. Here’s Matthew talking a bit about the video:

I woke up hungover in Lowestoft one morning and I had to go shopping for breakfast, so me and my mate Trigg swung into Asda and had a little shop whilst I mimed to the song. It was a really fun morning until the giant security guard cornered us and warned us he was gonna have to wipe all the footage!!! We were gutted but I showed him what we had done and the tune and he decided he liked it! So he let us back in, so we grabbed another trolley, and all we had left to get was the brown sauce. Good times.


‘The Breakfast EP’ will be released in April on Fiction Records.
