Matisyahu gets happy

Matisyahu, “Sunshine”

Spark Seeker

Since his last album release in 2009, Matisyahu has changed cities (New York for LA), management teams (he’s now self-releasing his music) and has shaved off his famous long locks.

On “Sunshine”- the lead single from his fourth record- it’s the move to LA which has sunk deepest into the music. It’s a blissfully happy track which moves from lite reggae to an all stops out pop hook in the chorus. It’s Matisyahu himself though, not LA, that gives the track it’s infectious optimism.
