Like so many others in 2020, Reading indie rocker Matt Maltese found himself stuck at home and dreaming of an escape. Having first established himself as a songwriter with a knack for dry one liners and a keen eye for self-deprecation Maltese has spent the years since releasing 2018 debut Bad Contestant searching for something more like sincerity. A year later he released follow-up album Krystal and now comes third album Good Morning, It’s Now Tomorrow, his most genuine project to date. It’s an album filled with romance and light-hearted ruminations on both love and the future, as well as continuing his search for something bigger than normal life.
Maltese says when summing up the album. “I never want to sound hopeless or like I get it, because I don’t. Life feels like a search but that’s the whole point.” Finally comfortable in life’s many uncomfortable positions, Good Morning, It’s Now Tomorrow is Matt Maltese admitting that he doesn’t have the answers he once thought he did and, most importantly, finding peace in knowing that none of us ever will.
