The Left Over Lies EP kicks off with the title track which is a massive chune brimming with dark basslines and vocals.
“Left Over Lies” brings Matheny’s trap-influenced sound front and center. Starting off with a smooth beat and lyrics that pull you in, he slowly brings in the distorted bass that kicks the track into high gear. Before you know it you’ll be swept up in a heater of a tune as the styles of Freddy Todd and Nat Nat mesh perfectly together for a ride. The switch-ups between the trap/experimental bass pieces of this track really stood out as it all blended in and out yet fit together like a puzzle piece.
If I was at a show and “Hold This” came on, I would have to look to my friend and say “hold my beer” so I could get swept up in its madness. There are so many different noises that make up this track and it had my mind blown. The distorted synths, massive wobbles, and brooding bassline had me grinning from ear to ear.
Last but most certainly not least, Matheny wraps things up with “Rectify.” From the moment it begins you are immersed in a dark soundscape that leads you to what’s next, the drop. From there, you’re surrounded by fuzzy and forward-thinking production skills that will be ringing in your ears. Matheny blends trap-infused sounds with experimental bass that keep you guessing what’s next – just wait till you get to the second half off the track, you’ll be throwing your hands up and grabbing at the air. I couldn’t get enough of this tune and it was my favorite off the EP.
If this is any indication of the year Matheny is about to have, we are in for such a treat. This entire EP deserves to be played out on a massive system and you’ll know exactly why after you listen!
