  • Matthew and The Atlas

    Matthew and The Atlas

    Alternative Folk

    Matthew Hegarty (AKA Matthew and The Atlas) is a British singer songwriter and was the first artist to be signed to Communion. After the dreamy and textured Americana of his ‘To The North’ and ‘Kingdom of Your Own’ EPs had built him a cult global following, Hegarty released the debut album ‘Other Rivers’ in April 2014, prompting Q to call him “the British Bon Iver“. Recorded in East Nashville with Brian Hall and Eric Hillman from Foreign Fields, his latest album, ‘Temple’ is a cathartic expression of its writer’s own fears and feelings. New parenthood inevitably colours Hegarty’s perspective on the world – a world whose natural wonders seem terminally threatened by the relentless march of technology.

    The “black figure” returns from ‘Other Rivers’ to again loom over parts of ‘Temple’, and throughout the album its protagonist seem to be striving, aching even, to find their place in amongst it all. But ultimately, there’s hope in the darkness; redemption to be found in honest human relationships. The album’s themes inspired Hegarty to team up with photographer friend Dave Watts. The pari travelling to various remote location across Cornwall and Somerset, with Watts shooting Hegarty in the wilderness, a tiny figure moving through a vast, desolate landscape.

    “Tunes that possess the dusty, muscular appeal of Springsteen” – MOJO

    “Hegarty’s earthy odes to heartbreak and deliverance have a classic quality … absolutely spellbinding” – The Independent

    “The new hope” – London Evening Standard
