SHARES NEW SINGLE 'I Wanna Be A Cowboy, Baby!'
Today, CMAT, the self-styled global pop star who lives at home with her grandparents in Dublin, releases her third single. The evocative, self-eviscerating ‘I Wanna Be A Cowboy, Baby!’ is a melancholic and moving slice of light-touch Americana-goes-pop, the perfect showcase for CMAT’s razor-sharp lyrics and memorable melodies.
CMAT on ‘I Wanna be a Cowboy, Baby!’:It’s mainly about urban isolation - about having all of the freedom and resources to do whatever you want but still choosing to do nothing out of deeply-embedded social anxiety and detachment from your own emotions. Sometimes you just turn around and ask yourself, “Why is my life crap? I don’t do anything, Why not?”. I never really have an answer to that, but I wish it was different. I want to be a cowboy instead.’
‘I Wanna be a Cowboy, Baby!’ follows her debut single, ‘Another Day (kfc)’, released in late April, and June’s ‘Rodney’, which picked-up nods from Nialler9,Paste Magazine,The Sunday Times, Popjustice, GoldenPlec; radio stations including TodayFM, 2FM and RedFM; and Spotify, who featured the songs in playlists including New Music Friday UK, Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds: Indie.
CMAT’s debut Irish headline shows were announced in July - her two Dublin dates sold out in under 90 minutes each.The socially-distanced shows take place in October. CMAT has been selected to appear at the Ireland Music Week showcase in Dublin in early October.
