"Ego Eats Your Soul" by Matt Kelly & Buttons Touching

3:27 minutes (3.95 MB)

 

"Ego Eats Your Soul" is one of a series of pieces created by singer Matt Kelly and producer Lulu Madill of  Button Touching. Matt Kelly has become well known in Melbourne while playing with his band The Keepers, but in this piece he has experimented more with sparse arrangements with  hypnotic repetition of the vocals which move from mantra to chant to dark ballad, creating a somber meditation on the nature of ego lost in the human mind. Buttons Touching's gorgeous arrangements underscore the song creating a haunting and memorable collaboration between the two artists reminiscent of Thom Yorke's best creations.
