WATCH: Matilda Mann - 'Nice'

Wait... writing about another artist on the Heartstopper soundtrack, me? Really? I am completely besotted with the show, and was delighted on first watch to hear Matilda Mann's Paper Mache World soundtracking one of the sweetest moments of the series. I've not watched/thought about anything that wasn't Heartstopper for a couple of weeks (barely an exaggeration) so you're getting Matilda's latest track here as a result. You're welcome, and you'd better watch the show now...! 

Nice sees Matilda working with producer Rich Cooper to create one of her most angsty and self-empowering songs yet. The track arrived with a video directed by Camila Noriega, shot on a recent visit to the LA hills, in which we see Matilda navigating a series of not-so-great dates. 

On the track and video, Matilda shares: "'Nice' is my dating rule. If I go on a date and the only word I can think to describe it is "nice", it's not worth another date. You'd never describe your best friends or your family as just "nice". There needs to be a better first word that comes straight to mind. The music video was so fun to make, up in the desert in LA. We came up with all these date ideas where it's going terribly, and it ends with me having had enough and walking off to play 'Nice' with my band."
