LISTEN: Matthew & The Atlas - 'Plaything'

With just over three weeks until the release of their brand new record Morning Dancer, Matthew & The Atlas have shared new track Plaything. It's the fourth track to be released from the record, and while it'll take something very special to overtake Pyres as my favourite track I'm really enjoying this one and can't wait to hear the album in its entirety on 10th May!

Driven by a strong drum beat, an instrumental section in the track shows the incredible musicianship at play among the band as guitars, drums, clarinet (and probably lots more, knowing these guys) combine to create something which is sonically rather lovely. On top of all this beautiful noise come the delicately crafted harmonies between vocalists Matt Hegarty and Emma Gatrill. Listen below...
