Matthew Fountain & the Whereabouts' "Written on Your Wall" Makes You Reflect on All Your Conversations





Matthew Fountain & the Whereabouts' "Written on Your Wall" Makes You Reflect on All Your Conversations

From shredding in Mississippi metal bands as a teen to a West Coast move resulting in a new sound, Matthew Fountain has taken the familial jazzy influence of his upbringing and turned it into the artsy folk pop us Portlanders get to experience today.

With anywhere from three to eight of his musician friends joining him live as part of the Whereabouts, Matthew Fountain's tunes lyrically reflect the familiar struggle we all have with reflecting on self-identity, social interactions, the future, love and other strong forces we experience. Some of these themes can be heard on his newest track, "Written on Your Wall," that came out just over a week ago.

Through moody chamber folk and a somewhat theatrical production, "Written on Your Wall" touches on the all too common human tendency of hearing what we want to out of conversations and other people's words. Its syncopated arrangements and interesting key changes keep the listener attentive while engaging in its relatable storyline. Give it a listen below
