Interview with Matthew Mole
You don’t know Matthew Mole yet? No problem, find out a little more about this talented young artist:
First off, for people that don’t know you yet, how would you describe your music in just one short sentence?
The short answer is somewhere in the Pop side of music. I love music with raw, acoustic influence and I love all sorts of electronic music. So I have combined the two and have loads of fun doing it!
Tell us a bit more about your new single “Run”, it’s a bit different compared to earlier songs, it has quite the Milky Chance vibe…
Ah yes! Milky Chance was definitely a big influence. I was listening to a lot of different styles of music when I was writing this album. I want the general feel to be uplifting and hopeful. “Run” is a song about facing the difficulties in your life.
You played a few European shows at the beginning of this year; it’s great to have you back over here soon. Is there something you’ve learned from your last tour, something you might do differently this time around?
February this year was the first time that I had ever toured in Europe. I had the most amazing time and learnt quite a lot, coming from South Africa. Interaction with an audience is super important to me, so I have been learning a lot about trying to reach the people that have not heard my songs yet but at the same time engage with the people who have heard them.
This time you’re playing a slightly bigger venue in Switzerland, which must be great. Is there a certain venue that you have on your bucketlist to play at?
I fell in love with the amazing venue we played at in February, but it’s a huge honor to know that we were going to be somewhere bigger this time around in June! There are so many venues all over the world that I’d love to play one day. It would be a dream to play at SEG Geneva Arena one day in Switzerland!
