The fourth full length album from Matt Bartram is due out January 2016. We honestly feel its some his most accomplished solo work to date.
For the last 15 years, between Air Formation and You Walk Through Walls, Matt Bartram has been one of the most prolific, consistent and respected songwriters of the shoegaze/dream pop genre. Following the demise of Air Formation in the spring of 2011, Matt Bartram formed You Walk Through Walls with fellow Air Formation alumnus James Harrison (together with Harry Irving) and released an EP and LP on the Club AC30 imprint in 2012 and 2014 respectively. Matt has collaborated with Rachel Staggs (Experimental Aircraft, All In The Golden Afternoon) as The Static Silence and has remixed tracks for Kontakte (Drifting Falling); purveyors of skyscraping instrumental cinematic rock, and Monster Movie; Christian Saville of Slowdive. Christian also played on the track “Twelve String Loop” on Bartram’s album “Left to Memory”.
Matt has spent the last several years recording experimental excursions at home in his project studio. These recordings generally spawn from improvisations based around simple rhythms and drone. His well received solo debut “Arundel”, was released in March 2008, the follow up “Left to Memory” followed in 2009, and most recently “The Dreaming Invisible” in 2011 a guitar based ambient masterwork, all three on Drifting Falling.
