Matthew and The Arrogant Sea is an indie rock band hailing from Denton, TX. Fronted by its founder and vocalist, Matthew Gray, the band has been active for over two decades. With their signature dream rock sound, drenched in human experience and clouds of shoegaze surrealism, they have conquered plenty of fame and fortune. Listeners of Coldplay, One Republic, and Oasis are sure to enjoy the dazed soundscapes of this band. Matthew and The Arrogant Sea have just put out their latest single called Targets. It follows their first release of the year (2023), Webs. 

The band’s deliberate use of misty sonics, coupling it with gloomy moods and fuzzy textures sets the tone for the song. It is the perfect atmosphere to flesh out the romanticism in anger and betrayal. The listener can’t help but appreciate the uncommon reconciliation of such emotional pallets with mellow rock moments. Matthew’s vocal ring of warm baritones and cool falsettos is the melting pot that makes it all work. Dispersing synths and electric guitar melodies engage at a molten crossroad that beams with subtle grace and sublime melody as the track rolls to its end. 

The track is available for streaming on popular sites like Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Amazon Music!
