Ahead of the release of his new album, Vanishing Island, on May 3, 2019 through Light Crude Records, Brighton art-rocker Matt Finucane is exclusively sharing his new video for the track “Perilous Seat” with PureGrainAudio.

Speaking about the track, Matt told us: “I wanted to write a sunny song of reassurance in these scary times, but as usual I couldn’t just leave it at that… The feeling of threat kept creeping back, through the lyrics and the echo guitar – in the end just I let it right in. It’s not a manifesto on how to fix this feeling, but a song just to express it, reflect it. After all, there’s no sunshine without shadow.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
