Things Have Changed by Mattafix

"If I had to love you, I know what I'd do."

Artwork for Rhythm & Hymns

I’ve been listening to Mattafix for a couple of years now, but Things Have Changed brings me back just a few months when I was studying abroad in London. Everyday after class I would wait at Bakers Street tube station (take a look), and listen to my playlist, which consisted of quite a few Mattafix songs, including Things Have Changed. Particularly, it brings memories of how “things have changed” over time – traveling from Minnesota to Arizona for college, and from Arizona to London (and all the little things in-between).

The song starts off with a rich set of instrumentals accompanied with what seems to be a vocal percussion. Preetesh Hirji begins with what may be some powerful and inspiring lyrics, but in all honesty, are hard to comprehend :). Marlon Roudette then takes over with his elegant & graceful vocals, but is often confused for a woman because of his high-pitched voice (I test people all the time). Mattafix has a couple hits, and I’ll definitely post more of ’em in the future, so make sure to sign up for my RSS feed, so you won’t miss out!
