'FIRST TIME' new single by Justin Mattock

OUT MARCH 25TH

 

Produced in Vancouver, BC by Dan Botch and Garrett Ward of The Renaissance, 'First Time' consists of soft, bright vocals and a swaying groove. With clean punchy guitars, keys, percussion and synths - the song is a blend of pop, country, and alternative. The dynamics of the tame verses are complimented by a climatic pre-chorus loaded with harmonies which rolls into a catchy hook that builds until the tune resolves. Reminiscent of the good times in a relationship and dwelling on loss, the story bounces between past and present.

Lyrics

I could go on about those first times

 

Like when the moonlight hit your eyes

 

Back on the porch we danced til sunrise

 

Our hearts they moved as one

 

I could go on and on forever

 

Darlin' it came and went too soon

 

Now I'm doing all the things we used to do

 

For the first time without you

 

We had a single night

 

Look how the stars aligned

 

Staying up til morning light with you

 

How did we get so far

 

Chasing wandering hearts

 

Yeah it was home right from the start with you

 

Late night drives, spilling truths

 

Lost in time, deja vu

 

Left behind thoughts of you

 

But somehow I still feel the same

 

I could go on about those first times

 

Like when the moonlight hit your eyes

 

Back on the porch we danced til sunrise

 

Our hearts they moved as one

 

I could go on and on forever

 

Darlin' it came and went too soon

 

Now I'm doing all the things we used to do

 

For the first time without you

 

Maybe I fell too hard

 

Into your delicate arms

 

Yeah we broke and came apart in two

 

Late night drives, spilling truths

 

Lost in time, deja vu

 

Left behind thoughts of you

 

But somehow I still feel the same

 

I could go on about those first times

 

Like when the moonlight hit your eyes

 

Back on the porch we danced til sunrise

 

Our hearts they moved as one

 

I could go on and on forever

 

Darlin' it came and went too soon

 

Now I'm doing all the things we used to do

 

For the first time without you

 

For the first time without you

 

For the first time without you

 

I could go on and on forever

 

Darlin' it came and went too soon

 

Now I'm doing all the things we used to do

 

For the first time without you

Artist bio for release

Justin Mattock is a Canadian Pop-Country artist with bright, heartfelt vocals and lyrics sung over nostalgic, feel-good instrumentation. Comparable to a range of artists from Thomas Rhett to John Mayer, he strays away from genre-specific writing in his music by pulling in feelings and sounds from many different styles. The music he writes comes from personal and others life experiences making each song relatable in one way or another. Inspired by the likes of Morgan Wallen, Dan & Shay, Brett Eldredge and many others, he crafts his songs with care and adds a passionate personal touch to each one. Being in previous Pop-Rock bands Fighting for Ithaca, Woke up Waiting and Chase Your Words, Justin has had the opportunity to share the stage and work along side some of the largest names in the genre with hopes to do the same in his new journey as a country artist. Currently having two previously released singles "By Your Side" and "Sweet Dreams", Mattock is progressing towards being a strong player in the Canadian music scene.
