Austin has been a hotbed for the singer-songwriter all the way back to the times of Willie Nelson, so it is no surprise these days when a voice comes along from that time zone that makes you take notice. Today’s video premiere highlights this as Matthew Squires and the Learning Disorders offer up the heartfelt track, “A Strange Piece” from their new self-released album Where The Music Goes To Die.
The video will catch your eye as it tells a story while visually moving the era backwards. The song itself displays Squires’ songwriting skills in its most simplistic form but as the ballad moves forward the video turns back the clock (and musical devices) which completely pulled me in until the film simply disintegrates.
“A Strange Piece” represents just one side of Matthew Squires and the Learning Disorders talent. If you like what you hear (or see), I would encourage you to check out their full length as Where The Music Goes To Die is a solid listen from beginning to end.
