Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to PRTLND. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked his music a lot.
PRTLND’s compositional style immediately made me think of the 90s. The charming atmosphere of the new single Burnt Out is nostalgic and refined at the same time.
Surely PRTLND developed a great musical taste over the years that allowed him to choose the perfect ingredients to create an intriguing and fascinating sound.
The chord progression is never predictable and banal and manages to entertain the listener from the first to the last second. This music seems to hide a secret and somehow speaks directly to the listener’s unconscious.
I closed my eyes while I was listening to this beautiful song and imagined myself driving aimlessly through the streets of Paris on one of those nights when you want to be alone with yourself.
An artist to keep under the radar as he has a lot of talent and creativity.
Burnt Out is PRTLND’s Single Out Now!
Refined and Unique!
PRTLND is the passion project of French-born guitarist, singer/songwriter, producer and mixing engineer, Mathieu Cote. Playing in bands in the late 90s and getting a feel for the music industry, Mathieu put his musical career on hold when moving to Ireland 17 years ago, but never stopped writing songs or avidly listening to new bands.
PRTLND is both a coming of age and a mid-life crisis. Through his music, Mathieu covers universal topics and hopes his music will, if not inspire, at least entertain his listeners.
