Singer and songwriter Mat Kearney has released another brand new single from his forthcoming album January Flower. Take a listen to "Pontiac" HERE.
Inspired by Bruce Hornsby, Mat's band tracked the song live to the driving pop backbeat. "I had written the word Pontiac in my phone because I thought it was an interesting idea; a car company we had all heard of that was no longer around" Mat says.
"It reminded me of those moments in life that are long gone but still drum up strong feelings of nostalgia. Flip phones, burned CDs and your dad telling you to drive slow seemed like the right way to say growing up is hard sometimes."
Mat tapped into a current obsession and made a laugh-out-loud video to pair with the track. "I have been obsessed with downhill skateboarding videos for the last few months. Watching people bomb down treacherous mountain roads is captivating, thrilling, and somewhat reckless. It seemed like a funny and interesting world for my song 'Pontiac' to live."
