American songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Kaz, shares his project Katmaz’ new track ‘Afterlife’. A preciously complex and emotive pop tune about life and its intricate complexities.
“Afterlife” is a song I wrote a long time ago – explains Katmaz – that has just been sitting in my hard drive for years. I decided to go back at it and fit it into a direction that I am moving in as an artist. The song uses the idea of reincarnation as a metaphor for love. Specifically, the first verse is the image of a fish constantly battling upstream and getting nowhere, so it decides to travel down stream falling off a waterfall. The second verse is the image of a rodent in a village that is lured away by music (pied piper kinda deal) to a cliff. I’d love to do an animated video for this in the way of ‘Riki Tiki Tiki” but I’m not sure how to make that happen. The song ends in frustration, and a guitar solo to take out said frustration.”
