No newcomer to the music world, Tobias Wonderdog is the moniker of Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Mat Weaven.
Tomorrow (19 October), he is releasing his debut single, the gloriously uplifting alt. country meets meandering indie rock number 'Not Bliss'. It's like Gomez took a chill pill and shared a cuppa with Beck in a back-shed studio somewhere desolate.
"The song is about cutting the red tape of society with simplicity and fact," declares Mat.
scenestr is stoked to be able to premiere an exclusive stream of 'Not Bliss' today. So go brew your favourite tea, then sit back and enjoy.
Mat Weaven is joined by Mark Kennedy (percussion), Dori Kennedy (didgeridoo), Cory Jach (guitar), Barney Loveland (bass), Dave Puopolo (drums) and Alana Sibbison (back-up vocals).
Ultimately, the track is about connection. "I think as people, we lose out on connectivity these days and get too caught up in feeling sorry for ourselves," Mat says.
"We should destroy the myth of what we call normal and practice in synergy as well as constructive criticism."
