Matt Berry - So Low

You've heard him on the radio, seen him on the telly, got his album, the single, seen him live and bought a t-shirt...probably.

Next from new-renaissance-man, Matt Berry, is a reworking of arguably his most popular song, So Low.

Worked around a dirty-hooky Fender Rhodes piano riff, the track funks like a gin-whore yet rocks out with the balls of her whiskey riddled dad. With lyrics that yearn for a life more ordinary, it re-writes the classic blues myth. An anthem for the ungrateified, unsatisfied or just plain bored.

With a different musical arrangement to that which features on the album Witchazel, the version was initially recorded for cult TV show The Old Grey Whistle Test, see below, the footage re-discovered only after the album was released.

Bundled together with the whimsical wiccan folk instrumental The Poacher the track is available as a download single from 26th Sept 2011.
