Matt Corby’s video for his latest single “Talk It Out,” featuring fellow Australian multi-instrumentalist Tash Sultana, debuts today—Clash proclaims, “The trippy, colorful results perfectly match the song, and help add another dimension to an already addictive collaboration.” The video was produced by Melbourne artist Andrew Onorato—who is known for his work on Childish Gambino’s animated video for “Feels Like Summer”—and creatively directed by Corby and Sultana’s mutual friend Pat Fox. Watch the video below:
“I’d like to give a big thank you to the artists behind this clip, Andrew Onorato and Pat Fox, for creating this amazing visual trip,” said Corby. “I’m super proud to share a songwriting experience with someone who I hold up so highly, and seeing how we both hate being in front of the camera we decided to make a wicked animation that combines both our styles and backgrounds,” Sultana adds.
Last week, “Talk It Out” was #1 most played song on Australia’s triple j and has already garnered over 2.5 million streams globally. The song continues to receive widespread critical praise—NPR Music says, “The track is warm and breezy with throwback horns, a sexy R&B bass-line and back-and-forth vocals just as chill as a game of catch in the park. A summer song for shady days,” while Affinity Magazine furthers, “‘Talk It Out’ expresses both artists’ distinct flairs with much cohesion. Reminiscent of Childish Gambino’s flow, this vibey and organic collaboration is sure to keep you dancing all summer.” Atwood Magazine adds, “The mood of the music is groovy: It’s funky. Intentionally or not, it brings a wave of calm and joy over you… Corby and Sultana execute this perfectly.”
In the last 18 months Sultana has toured 20 countries, sold over 500,000 tickets and even made music history in London where she became the first artist in the world to sell out three dates at London’s Brixton Academy without an album released. Corby recently performed sold-out shows at London’s Roundhouse and two nights at Kentish Town Forum. Between the two of them, they have achieved 6 multi-platinum singles and over 750 million streams on Spotify alone.
Additionally, Corby is set to embark on a headlining North American tour in the spring of 2020. The run of shows includes stops at New York’s Webster Hall, Los Angeles’ The Fonda, Chicago’s Metro, Seattle’s Neptune and more. See below for complete tour dates.
