Matt Kivel is a singer/songwriter currently living in New York. Matt began his music career as a member of indie band Princeton, but pivoted to focus on his own material around 2013. Since then, he’s put out four solo albums, working with labels Old English Spelling Bee, Woodsist and Driftless, and collaborating with Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes.

For his new album, last night in america, Matt went back to basics, reconnecting with the purest elements in his music. He produced the album entirely from his temporary home in Austin, Texas, playing all the instruments himself and focusing on minimalist arrangements. The result is a soft-spoken portrait of contemporary Americana, illustrated with brushstrokes of warm guitar, textural synths and evocative lyrics, both dark and full of hope.

Gently moving between dreamlike instrumental pieces and guitar-driven compositions, the album seamlessly blends ambient, folk, and lo-fi pop into something wistful and timeless. last night in america emerges as a deeply intricate collection that blooms for the patient listener. last night in america is out May 10, 2019 on Cascine and Pedro y el Lobo.
