A muscular piece of folk-driven songwriting, blessed with a poetic touch and a soaring arrangement – Clash Magazine
Bouncy-yet-delicate – Pure Volume
I find myself overdosing on Matte’s sweet melodies and the inspiring instrumentals of this Canadian ensemble to get me through sickness of the heart. I know this feeling – Indie Shuffle

Jon’s Quote about the song + video:
“This was a spontaneous last minute addition to the record about the fire that feeds us and brings us to do all the things we do, or ignore the things we don’t do but wish we had. A voice inside most of us that can easily be ignored but the burn is a constant reminder. This video was all about the casting! I walked in the day of the shoot and met George, who plays the main role in this music video. He is the most endearing, honest, pure, yet driven 17 year old kid I have ever met. From that moment I was sold on the director’s story & concept. I invite you to meet George for yourself.”
