atilda Lyn has an uncanny knack for putting concise and wry words to the aches and pains of coming of age. She shares her new single ‘Down Down Down’, an ethereal pop track which builds to a stirring conclusion, about the slow death of a relationship. Over her debut single, ‘A Bowl Of Unripe Fruit’, and latest tracks ‘Fooled By September’, ‘Wait for Me’, and ‘Dead Ends’, Matilda has built an incredibly impressive foundation for a rising popstar, with support from BBC Radio 1, Apple Music 1, NME, Sunday Times, Wonderland, Clash, i-D, Pigeons & Planes, The Line of Best Fit and more. Accompanied by another cinematic video filmed in the Swedish countryside, it builds on the pastoral imagery which provides a throughline across Matilda’s visuals. Speaking on the track, Matilda explains: “The process of making down down down started with me and Dennis Svennebäck (who I wrote and produced it with) playing around with a synth in the studio, which is the arpeggio synth you can hear throughout the whole song. The song’s about letting go of something that’s not really good for you anymore. I love how it captures every single thought and feeling I had at that exact moment when it was written.” Once again, the Swedish songwriter and producer stakes her claim as a bold and intentional new artist to watch.
‘Down Down Down’ is written, performed and produced by Matilda Lyn, and released on Giant, the new LA-based label helmed by Jeffrey Azoff, founder of Full Stop Management (Harry Styles, Lizzo, Anderson .Paak, James Blake).
Born and raised in Gothenburg, Matilda caught the producing bug during her time at Sweden’s prestigious Musik Makarna school, the foremost songwriting academy in Europe. In creating her own brand of intricate, ethereal pop, her music is wholly introspective and relatable, marked by Matilda’s unique ability to juxtapose her own sugary sweet vocals with more dissonant and surprising instrumental elements. An assured and accomplished songwriter, musician, vocalist and producer, Matilda is already making a huge mark in 2023.
