Dante Matas is a singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist from Toronto with a unique brand of new wave bedroom pop, psychedelic folk, and lo-fi electronic music. His songs tend to have contemplative and introspective character to them, but never at the expense of a catchy melody.
After releasing multiple albums and singles between 2017-2019, Dante is steadily putting out new songs each month in 2021 and 2022. The singles are grouped into several EPs spanning different genres, moods, and musical landscapes. The first EP is called The Place I Want to Be and was released on July 16, 2021. It is inspired by lo-fi and psychedelic folk music. The second EP is called Avoid Discipline. It’s a very different record inspired by hyper-melodic synth pop with a new wave twist. The first single from that EP is called Fear of Losing and released on August 20th 2021.
“Fear of Losing” is the first single from his forthcoming EP, Avoid Discipline, inspired by hyper-melodic synth pop with a new wave twist. Playful and eccentric, it’s about the narrator standing up for themselves; but they aren’t used to doing that, and go a bit too far in the other direction.
