Since landing in our headphones back in 2017, Mathilda Homer has continued to steal our hearts. Her emotional and relatable has had us crying, laughing and dancing around our rooms. And now, she is back and better than ever. ‘I’m Sorry‘ is Mathilda’s latest explosive single. Not only does it exhibit her musical talents in general, but also her raspy power-house vocals. We got the honour of talking to Mathilda about her latest projects, inspiration and what we can look forward to in the future.
Starting at the beginning, we took Mathilda down memory lane. With such an eclectic range of talents, we wanted to know what started off Mathilda’s love for music, and how she found herself pursuing her passion.
Worldwide lockdowns have turned creative industries on their heads. Artists, musicians and writers alike have been forced to find inspiration in a now very mundane day-to-day life. Social distancing has also seen live shows turn into live streams, and shows across the world be cancelled. So we asked Mathilda how she has been dealing with this strange time, and if there were any positives she is taking away from it.
Like so many of our favourite artists, Mathilda’s sound is always developing. Her natural talent is evident, but her musical talents are continuing to grow as she does the same herself. And as the music industry moves forward, the idea of ‘genre’ is one that is becoming obsolete. Mathilda went on to sum up her music outside the narrow category of ‘genre’.
Full of softs keys and emotive language, Mathilda’s newest track ‘I’m Sorry‘ takes her listeners on a journey into the inner workings of her mind and heart. She explained to us that the track stems from not one, but many different relationships with the people closest to her.
And much like her latest tune, Mathilda’s earlier music all focuses on the world directly around her. While her music is inherently close to her specific soul, it is still entirely relatable to her devoted listeners. She gave us a window into the inspirational journey she takes in creating her music.
While we wait with baited breath for our live shows to return, so do our favourite artists. When asked what we can look forward to in the future, Mathilda replied with some very exciting answers, which we will wait on the edge of our seats for.
