This City's Colors
Over the past 5 years, singer/songwriter Matthew Presidente has been observing his city of Vancouver. Durring the lead-up to the Olympics the ever growing homeless population and the violence came to a loud peak. It was hard to ignore everything that was going on 'behind the scenes' while living in this beautiful place. 'THIS CITY'S COLORS' thematically explores the darker side of Vancouver durring the strange and difficult time of change, and celebrates the beauty of it. Exploring heavy synths, distorted guitars, and samples Matthew has gone to new lengths in creating a layered soundscape. His signature 'piano metal' style is ever present, but taken to the new level on this rich, exciting album.
