ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
New York City’s high voltage wonderboy Matthew Duffy arrives somewhere at the nexus of blissful electro pop and hard-boiled indie rock. Drawing inspiration from a dynamic array of musical styles– with frequent comparisons to New Wave pioneers Depeche Mode fused with the soulful intensity of Kate Bush – Matthew Duffy is forging new sonic territory.

After graduating from NYU’s venerable Tisch School of the Arts with a degree in dance, Matthew turned down the opportunity to join a dance company in pursuit of something more personal. Since music has always been the central force in his life, singing and songwriting became the focus to which he turned and remains intensely devoted.

With a cadre of top-shelf producers in tow, he released his groove-oriented debut album Here I Come (2004), which yielded the Billboard dance chart-topping hit “Electric Shock.” The must-see video for that song is a jaunty, pop homage to 80s electro, fun-house flicks like Tron and Xanadu. The album received nationwide attention when the song “Until The End” was featured in a steamy scene on TV’s groundbreaking series Dante’s Cove. Matthew recently hosted the popular music video show NewNowNext on LOGO, where his video for “Little Bird” attracted a passionate following. While his earlier album was what Matthew describes as “a mixtape of my life at the time,” his upcoming release The Healing Machine finds him expanding the idea of what it means to be an electronic artist in a world that is spinning so fast, nothing really is as it seems.

The first single off the album, “#1 Enemy” is a seething, epic track about justice, about seeking out and getting the proverbial bad guy. Think of it as dance music with a conscience. “I want my work to incite change,” he says of his music, “to inspire the demoralized, the underdog.” The guiding principle behind The Healing Machine is this idea of music’s curative power to set you free. “When I didn’t have the answer, when I didn’t understand, I turned to music first to heal me. Music helped me find my way, gave me the power to become who I am meant to be.”

Nice sounds, interesting titles, good potential
Matthew puts together an album with a great palette of sounds, an immaculate, polished production and thought provoking track titles. His first release, #1 Enemy has done well on gay radio and television, and is accompanied by a well produced (albeit budget conscious) video.

I actually want to like Matthew's album more than I do. The immaculately produced tracks really don't disguise the uninspired melodies which do not succeed in being minimal and punchy, as befits this style of music. Matthew's voice does not suit the mean, moody, angst-ridden individual he tries to portray in his music. Duffy's restricted vocal range comes across in his 3 note melodies. His vocal lines all seem to run into each other without distinction or variation. Having said that, the vocals are in tune, well produced and subjected to many interesting effects.

Some of the electronic sounds are interesting, constantly changing, captivating and worthy of any Madonna album. However, unlike Madonna, they are assembled in a bland soup which makes you want to race to the end of the track. Rather than being biting Euro-style electropop (eg New Order, Ian Gibson, Future Sound of London, Orbital), the raw edge seems to have faded to a worn fringe as it traveled across the Atlantic. The result is a sanitized sound lacking in depth.

Duffy's a good artist. But he needs to change direction slightly and work with new people to truly produce something which will inevitably fulfill his potential. With a little more focus, Matthew will take the world by storm.

Intense, Fun, & Mighty Fresh
really amazing lyrics.....feeling & rocking #1 ENEMY & PRETTY....heard UNTIL THE END on Dante's Cove and discovered Matthew's music..complex and raw...reminds me of early Pet Shop Boys with a 'lil Tiga thrown in...do it boy!

Duffy Delivers Again!!!
This album is fun and fresh. I love every song! My favs include "Ride It," "Don't Speak," and "#1 Enemy" He is so creative and I love his futuristic sound. You will not regret the small price you pay for such a big album. I have been a fan since "Here I Come," he has matured and perfected his Electro pop sound. To be honest, I like this album a little bit more. Duffy is a down to earth artist and it is only a matter of time before he blows up the plain jane music scene. I couldn't really compare his music to anyone but if I had to, it would be Madonna meets Justin Timberlake. Thanks to Duffy for being such a strong role model for gay men!! Keep up the great work!!
