Bahamian folk artist Matthew Pinder excitedly welcomes the long-awaited release of his new EP, Seated In The Sun, out November 5. Pinder’s soothing vocals and introspective lyricism couple to create a mesmerizing soundtrack that eases the soul despite exploring heavy-hearted subject matter. The calibre of intentional, profound artistry captured on this project implores listeners to surrender their full attention to every word Pinder whispers.
This release follows the recent previews “Cascade,” “Used To Say,” and “Stars,” completing the collection with the final track, “Plans,” featuring Sara Davis Regan. Pinder describes this project as “songs made in many little rooms,” in reference to the difficult, yet undeniably successful remote recording process with this project. Seated In The Sun was made in collaboration with co-producers Mitch Webb and Sara Davis Regan, and Sherwood Rahming, who worked closely with Pinder in the early stages of creating the EP.
Matthew Pinder is a Bahamian singer-songwriter who has established a quintessential sound within the indie-folk space over the last few years. Pinder often sings from his own experiences allowing his music to leave an “indelible mark on indie-folk music” (B-Sides & Badlands). First gaining recognition for his viral hit single “Golden Hour” – still one of his most popular releases today with over 2 million streams – he soon followed with the release of the full-length album, Give Me Some Time which was hailed as “Pinder’s magnum opus: a debut so rich and extravagantly heart-rending and deeply-crushing” (B-Sides & Badlands).
Soon after, Pinder took a break from music to focus on his mental health until he was ready to begin on his next project, set to release later this fall. Working with local studio engineer/producer Sherwood Rahming and past collaborators Mitch Webb and Sara Davis Regan, Pinder is eager to make music “fun” again by making it with people and friends along the way. Nonetheless, fans can still expect his modern flair with the influences of classic singer-songwriters and present-day artists, all melded into a sound completely his own.
