M A T A have a sweet backstory. The London-based band is fronted by British-Peruvian singer slash guitarist Luis Atawalpa Felber or LAF as we shall now refer to him from.
LAF was actually one of the original founders of Young Turks back in 2005 when Young Turks was but a humble club night full of rock n roll shenanigans (they put on The Maccabees first show dontcha know). Since then LAF has been writing and producing records for Skinny Girl Diet, HMLTD, Loyle Carner, Shuga, Rat Boy and even Mick Jagger – believe it or not!
Now LAF and his M A T A mates are releasing their debut track ‘DDD‘ through Luv Luv Luv records. It’s a real stomper of a single that LAF describes as “Loosely based on our tremulous relationship with Mother Nature.” You’d probably describe it as being not not creepy.
Catch M A T A playing live at London’s Mascara Bar on Thursday 14th December. Tickets here!
