Hit-making songwriter and electronic artist Matthew Koma today premieres the music video for his brand new single, “Kisses Back” out now on RCA Records. His new single “Kisses Back” is his emotionally charged new track about the aftermath of a tough breakup. The video was directed by Jungle George known for his recent work on Bishop Briggs’ equally compelling video for “River.”
Koma describes the video: “If you go through a breakup with someone while on an LSD trip, I think it could look something like this. We wanted to make a video that looked as manic and unstable as the relationship the song is about. Breakups and infidelity can feel really surreal and this video stretches that idea to another planet.”
Co-produced by Flux Pavilion, “Kisses Back” pairs Koma’s well-crafted, emotionally resonant pop songwriting with cutting-edge electronic production, and serves as a reunion between Koma and Flux Pavillion, who collaborated on last year’s hit “Emotional.”
“Kisses Back,” released earlier this month, has received fantastic early critical response: Billboard calls “Kisses Back” “excellent new solo material,” Idolator raves “the singer/songwriter’s love affair with club music is still going strong and he continues to imbue the genre with real emotion,” and Your EDM continues “Kisses Back plays to Koma’s melodic and emotional strengths. His unique voice allows himself to set himself apart.”
Kisses Back” is the first single from Koma’s forthcoming debut album, which further showcases the evolution of Matthew Koma as he taps into the new generation of producers, working with Louis the Child, Jai Wolf, Grey, Steve James, Flux Pavilion, and more. These new collaborations have led to a fresh new side for Matthew, focusing on straight ahead pop music, Future Bass, and Dubstep.
