‘Mottingham’ is the intimate new single from London’s MTMBO

Londoner Richie Matembo, A.K.A. MTMBO, has been making a name for himself over the last three years through his signature blend of intimate, confessional R&B. It’s a writing first approach, with Matembo’s staggered production framing the melody perfectly; an approach reminiscent of SOHN and Frank Ocean. Last year MTMBO released ‘The Hill’, his first track to be homed on Spotify; so far, it has amassed almost 700,000 streams showing a clear appetite for his music.

His new single ‘Mottingham’ continues down this vein, opening with a subdued bass riff that glides gently underneath Matembo’s stacked vocal. The track slowly builds towards a gentle crescendo, opening up into a glistening chorus of ‘sunrise’.
