Hear “Somebody Else” as sung by Matt Carstens

When a relationship becomes unattainable, it’s only logical that the two parties involved find an amicable solution, which in most cases leads to them parting ways. South African indie-pop singer/songwriter Matt Carstens has, thus, created a new post-breakup ballad that paints the picture such a scenario. The song is titled “Somebody Else” and, although it carries a tinge of the melancholia, the song is, however, positive in its outlook.

It’s the happiest break-up song I’ve ever written. And yes, it’s about my last relationship that came to an end, and the process of coming to terms with the fact that love comes and goes…” ~ Matt Carstens

Matt is based in Cape Town, and last year, he got to tour the UK as part of the Coffee House Sessions initiative.
