“She reminds me of a young Leslie Feist. Suffice it to say her future’s bright.” – Chilly Gonzales (Daft Punk, Feist)
Matilda Abraham is a vocalist and songwriter who produces her own music. A trained musician, Matilda’s sound combines a long-held fascination with songwriting with etherial vocals, warm synths and delay affected drum machine.
Matilda was a 2016 participant in the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy. This opportunity saw her selected by Grammy award winning producer Chilly Gonzales, along with four other participants, to collaborate for a sold out show in Montreal, Canada.
Matilda’s music is characterised by a kind of even tenderness. Heavily layered vocal arrangements feature prominently providing a bed of lush texture. This is juxtaposed by her use of cheap, vintage Casio keyboard and drum machine. Effects and layering of instruments take the music deep into the realm of production where Matilda continues to cut her teeth on the full indie artist skill set.
Matilda’s debut release New Balloon came out in October, 2016. She is currently preparing to release her 2017 EP in December with the first single Away coming early in October. The track will premiere with an accompanying video clip shot by renowned still photographer Stuart Miller (National Gallery of Victoria, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art).
