MAWD is the moniker of California-based musician and songwriter Madeline Matthews. Not too long ago, she released a cool rock’n’roll single, entitled, “Dark Room”. The song is an explosion of husky vocals over gritty guitars and driving rhythms.
MAWD – “Dark Room”
“Dark Room profiles the feeling of isolation. I felt like I was going crazy, sitting in my dark dingy dorm room, struggling with the longing for a comforting feeling. Also, trying to fit in, feeling like a stranger in my skin, and discovering a new dark part of my mind.” – M
The soulful, textured timbre of the artist is diverse. Her vocals mesh well with the sonic foundation laid by quivering electric guitar, haunting harmonies, and acoustic folk rhythms.
In conclusion, the artist is a true musician who plays the piano, guitar, ukulele, bass, accordion, and some banjo as well. Also, she has headlined sold-out shows across the globe and will be performing at SXSW this Spring.
