A raspy fluorescence glimmers in Mathilda Homer’s ‘Rock Bottom’.
For someone who’s Spotify description sounds more like a Tinder bio (her words, not ours), the information out there about Mathilda is slim, which is why she lets the music do all the necessary talking.
Co-written by Matt Maltese and produced by Danny Casio of The Six, ‘Rock Bottom’ encapsulates the deterioration of what used to be a lustrous bond between two souls. In times like these, we cling to the moments that powered the now dim relationship, nostalgic for what’s been and gone.
On the track, Mathilda explains: “It’s realising that it really couldn’t get much worse, but something keeps you there, maybe it’s the familiarity of that person. Trying to fight for something that you know can’t go back to how it used to. Only talking about good memories and not making new ones but you don’t want to move on, because it’s all you know.”
Accompanied by an imposing visual directed by Pip & Lib, we witness Mathilda reminisce in countryside backdrops with a fiery finale.
