UNDER THE RADAR: Sparrow – “Homeless Heart”.
Sparrow is the new musical project from Brooklyn based songwriter, Matthew Anderson. Although Matthew has already released a number of records under various guises, he is set to release the debut Sparrow EP this month and today we’re sharing the first taste of it, with the video for upcoming single, Homeless Heart.
Sparrow’s sound is one of delicate melodies, slowly unfurling musical landscapes, and gentle drifting melancholy. “Homeless Heart” builds around a distant but insistent piano line and Matthew’s aching, echoing vocal.
The accompanying visuals, directed by filmmaker Matthew Taylor, invite us into a world of snow-covered and eerily empty urban landscapes, a perfect accompaniment to the song’s nagging sense of an unspoken, discomforting truth.
A highly promising first offering.
