Egyptian Blue have shared their new single Matador and confirmed details of a string of European tour dates.
Egyptian Blue recently returned with the single Geisha which picked up strong support from radio and tastemakers whilst pointing towards a new direction for the band. Now, Matador, lands featuring a three minute burst of energy.
As Egyptian Blue frontman Andy Buss explained, “Matador is a remark on the unwanted perils of keeping toxic relationships at an arms length, yet being unwillingly compliant and searching for the exit. I seem to recall the song coming together in a sole session after a 20 minute jam. With some songs you walk out of the practice room feeling excited and strangely liberated. I think that feeling was really captured at the time.”
The track is accompanied by a video from long-time collaborator Jonathan Waller.
