Out today is What Makes You Come – the new single from Matilda Gratte which had its premiere on Swedish radio P4 yesterday.
Despite the title’s sexual connotations, the single is instead a lovers plea for a partner to decide on their future. Produced by Christian Mombrú this smooth, soulful pop track eases away stress with gentle guitar strings and sweet harmonies.
We’ve had a heightened sense of expectation of this young Swedish singer, especially since first heard her on ‘We Are Young‘ with the Jazz/Funk band Beat Funktion.
Matilda Gratte from Bromma, Stockholm may already be a familiar face to some Swedes after she participated in TV4’s Idol in 2014. Despite a respectable seventh place, she knew this wasn’t the direction she wanted her and her music to go in. What the singer feels within American soul/R&B is where her expression thrives.
Since then Matilda moved to the US and started studying to be a songwriter at the esteemed Berklee College of Music.
Now back in Sweden she launches her debut self-written single ‘What makes you come’.
We’ll definately be coming back for more.
