Song Review : Matt Simons Gives Techno A Folk Flare In Song “Lose Control”

Matt Simons “Lose Control”  combines the lyricism of folk music with the synthetic sound of electronica to create, what I call, techno-folk. This genre is booming as a bridge between vivid lyricisms of  folk music , and the neon realities electronica can incite. Matt Simons might be its pioneer contractor with his newest track Lose Control.
On occasion, there is a video that rejuvenates the song it represents to the mind of a listener. Videos are meant to surprise listeners by expanding their senses, and extending the meaning of a song through further imagination. Lose Control is, definitely, and imaginative video with a couple moving interpretively to colorful splashes, fruits, and flowers spontaneously blooming in whatever ground they decide to dance over. The video elaborates some thing we all knew about Matt Simons’ music; it is vivaciously romantic.

The critically acclaimed Northern California-born and Brooklyn-based singer is known for writing crooning lyrics that make you want to bask in love like it were cascading over you. The sweetness of his words combine surprisingly well with the up-beat dance rhythms of electronica. The track uses synthetic-pop influences to garner the pristine sways that guiltlessly associated with pop music. This genre is known as “clean fun”, yet Simons bouncing bassline and electric arrangements show that clean fun is still FUN! Moreover, it is still filled with heart, as the folksy lyrics never fails to capture how differently/ lively you see life when you are in love.

Lose Control is all about the “rose-colored” glasses that we where when we feel we have found our partner in life. Love is a beautiful rush that is uncontrollable, but Simons asks”Why try to control it?”. Let love take you to another world, like in the video, and let his music be the soundtrack. Luckily, he is on tour, and is a concert is a perfect date night. For More Information on Matt Simons or To Buy His Record Click Here.
