Matilda Gracia – Player (Dreamscope Media Group Ltd.)
|Matilda Gracia - Player|
Release Date: Out Now
Matilda Gracia is half-Irish, half-Spanish and has a penchant for a bit of Janis Joplin. This is not a woman that you want to cross so I’m really hoping that I like this new single. ‘Player’ opens with a Santana inspired acoustic vs electric guitar riff that has a bit of funk about it and Matilda Gracia’s vocal is fierce, full of attitude and a sense of bitterness that is, frankly delicious. This feels like a modern-day version of Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’ in terms of the attitude but it’s far more energetic and frenetic which would allow you to dance to this more effectively than Simon’s more moody classic. Smooth, angry and delivered with clenched teeth and a sneer – like I said, not a woman to be crossed.
