If there is a true type of musician we are absolutely jealous of, it is the multi-instrumentalist. Today as we peek into Toronto’s indie world we are checking out “Four Leaf Clover”, the newest single from Distant Matter. Created by Toronto native Alex Swartz-Seligman, Distant Matter is the culmination of multiple years of learning music production as an outlet for his creative energy. Alex began his production career just a few years ago at age 17 and toils busily in his home studio crafting his debut EP. Now 20 years old, we are finally getting a sneak peek at the finished product. You know how we teased that he is a very talented multi-instrumentalist? During his childhood, Alex learned a complete range of instruments including piano, guitar, drums, bass, harmonica, and talk-box!
When we peek into the indie scenes of Toronto and Montreal, we aren’t often treated with artists that go back to our bread and butter, electronic music. While Distant Matter may still be incredibly early on in his career, we can confidently say that we need to make room and shove “Four Leaf Clover” into our rotation immediately. Distant Matter takes the presentation of today’s chill hop, the rising melodies of Porter Robinson, and the lyrical prowess + groove of Daft Punk (RIP) in order to stitch together a complete mishmash of styles. However, while each element has their moment in the sun throughout the track, once they are combined they shine together and take “Four Leaf Clover” to the next level. When are we hearing this on the radio Alex? We need more Distant Matter in our lives, and you bet we will showcase his debut EP when it drops soon.
