Follow Your Heart - Mat Riviere

The debut album from Norwich-based Mat Riviere is one of those records that sounds like it was designed to clear parties. We're told Mat's attempts at joining other bands failed due to him not being much of a social animal. Thus his fellow band members are now a couple of keyboards and a laptop, providing him with gloomy, sometimes catchy beats 'n' electronics to sing over in a vocal style that resembles your depressed uncle after he's had a few too many whiskies or occasionally a more docile Mark E Smith. Follow Your Heart is vaguely intriguing, but is too impenetrable to imagine its reach extending much further than masochistic fans of lo-fi art pop.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
