Matt Kivel: “Insignificant”
After releasing his debut album Double Exposure last year, singer/songwriter Matt Kivel is already back for his second full-length album (talk about double exposure!). To tease Days of Being Wild, Kivel has given us “Insignificant,” the first single from the set. The track finds Kivel back with his understated songwriting and simple arrangements. Over a dirty electric guitar, he sings straightforward but memorable melodies in his fragile voice. The song takes its time with long instrumental sections between verses, adding hints of piano to brighten up the texture. If “Insignificant” is anything to go by, Days of Being Wild will be more reserved than its title alludes to. But it will also be pretty great.
