FM PREMIERE: MEBO’s ‘Unravel’ is the ultimate mellow mood-booster

"Being stuck inside forced me to tackle what was uncomfortable and unravel what needed addressing.”
2 December 2022

Look no further if you’re searching for some fresh, new silky smooth RnB to add to your chill-out playlist. Unravel is the latest track from 25-year-old LA-based singer and producer MEBO, AKA Matthew Boutte. This track is the ultimate mellow mood-booster, with stripped-back percussion, luscious melodies and crisp production all coming together to create a silky, serene RnB song that’s too good not to have on repeat.

“Unravel is about having to investigate the sides of myself that I could ignore before the pandemic. Being stuck inside forced me to tackle what was uncomfortable and unravel what needed addressing.” 

MEBO’s open and honest lyrical style lends the track a refreshing sense of authenticity. His soulful voice tugs at our heartstrings, and it’s hard not to empathize with and even relate to, the message at the core of the track; his realization of the self-work that needs to be done for him to truly grow – ‘’I’ll mend the other side of me, I’ll learn to truly be free.’’

MEBO has been releasing music since his debut in 2018 and has been receiving a solid amount of attention, garnering over 1.6 million streams on his first single Coping (Get Over), all thanks to his artistry, those velvety vocals and his raw, vulnerable lyrical style. Unravel is a really impressive offering from such a young artist, and the thought of what is yet to come from MEBO is nothing short of exciting.
