#NEWMUSICMONDAY: Denley “Following A Lie”


It’s Monday, which means a panic attacking-induing amount of coffee and new music to aid your late afternoon crash. Coming from San Francisco via Leeds, UK producer Denley (Matt Holt) is here with a debut tune “Following a Lie” off his forthcoming EP – “Close, Within Reach.” The EP is inspired by “the feeling of wanting to replace mundane drudgery with freedom of expression and emotional betterment; the idea that when we feel at our most downtrodden, that something else is out there waiting to be tapped into.” Monday goes with “mundane drudgery” like peanut butter goes with jelly – but this chilled out electro number is just the ticket to soothe your jitters. “Following a Lie” features vocals from Jagjaguwar artist Briana Marela: “The visions I seek, are close within reach, and yet I find, I’m losing time, I’m afraid I’ll be here my whole life.” Sure sounds like concerns of missed opportunity and wasted youth we’ve all experienced – but a reminder of the value of music as therapy to combat such anxiety.

Denley’s five-track EP “Close, Within Reach” is out 10/16 via Yellow Year Records. Listen to “Following a Lie” below.
