Check This: Matthew Good – Decades

Artist: Matthew Good

Song: Decades

Genre: Rock

Matthew Good has been a staple of the Canadian rock scene since the 1990’s as part of the Rochester Kings, and then the Matthew Good Band, cranking out impassioned melodic rock with big dramatic hooks. His last album, Chaotic Neutral, was one of my favorites of 2015 – a moody but powerful piece of song-writing craftsmanship. Good has never found commercial success in the states, despite his excellent catalog, but thankfully he keeps releasing new music despite this.

In 2017, Good has released two tracks from his upcoming album. The first, “Bad Guys Win“, is a timely dissection of the current world climate, which was accompanied by an equally political video. Second single “Decades” is driven by vibrant guitars and hammering drums, and an equally big chorus perfect for modern rock stations. Good’s lyrics are esoteric but powerful, “Maybe it’s the coffin, the dirt on me perceived, so oft forgotten reality”. He’s an artist who can create mood and emotion through vivid imagery and vocals, even if the lyrics can not be easily deciphered.
