Matt Elliott has rather an atypical course. He used to work under the pseudo third eye foundation, emblematic figure of the English electronic scene recognized for his atypical electro tinted by Drum' N' Bass. Since his first albums, "The Mess We Made" (Domino Records) and "Drinking Song" (Ici d'ailleurs), Matt Elliott turns to compositions much more Folk forsaking the laptop and the machines which go until disappearing on "Failing Songs", to return to more traditional instruments (guitar, piano, violin). To succeed to "Drinking Songs", because it's really about songs, "Failing Songs" turns Matt Elliott into a true songwriter. He assumes completely his voice and sings very personal and dark texts. Songs whose subtle melodies contrast with the hardness of the words because "Failing songs" is a hard failure report. Between despair and cold anger, the texts talk about the liberal military evolution of the world that the author rejects. The Titles are as sublime as melancholic, bitter and sad, impressed by Slavic music, Greek, and besides, sometimes punctuated of Spanish guitars, sometimes close to Dimitri Chostakovitch or Pascal Comelade's sonorities at his beginnings an artist that Matt however reveals not to know).
