Matt Zarley - Perfect


Matt's follow-up single to W.T.F. is Perfect. a song about finding the "perfect" person.  Perfect takes on a very subjective meaning because the song isn't about physical perfection or mental well being or any of that.  It's about realizing that sometimes perfect isn't about traits and features, it's about those imperfections that you see and bring someone closer to being who they should be, not what you want them to be.  It's about meeting that person and realizing that outside of all their own perceived faults, they are the person that helps to make you, well...you and you help them to see they are everything they need to be in order to be a better person.  We aren't all lucky enough to find this person in our lives but when we do, it's a magical thing that can really never be duplicated.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Matt has an uncanny knack for taking everything that you feel and distilling it into an amazing piece of art.  The video for the song echos the sentiment laid out in the track and the visuals are pretty amazing.  Everyone looks amazingly happy and it just gives the song an injection of positivity that helps propel it to a higher plane.

Matt's next single is going to be Trust Me,  a super sexy anthem about letting your guard down and trying something new.  I hope that the video for that has a treatment as outstanding as what has been done for the previous two singles because it's one of my favorite songs on the album.  And Matt is quickly moving up in my estimation of my favorite independent artists.
