Al Matcott’s debut single ‘Mediocre’, is everything you’d want in a calling card: rootsy, expansive, and true. His natural drawl feels lived-in and relaxed, even when Matcott dispenses withering lyrics and layered wordplay. A pointed takedown of people who don’t bother holding themselves to account, the song follows glistening guitar licks and his deceptively casual delivery to a dryly stinging kicker of a chorus: “You could be anyone / Why would you choose to be / such a mediocre person?”

“The lyrics have always been something I’ve spent time paying attention to. I hope they’re memorable,” says Matcott. “‘Mediocre’ was about the Melbourne music scene and people around me – and myself, to a certain degree. A lot of people were able to be pretty shitty versions of themselves and get away with it.”

Formally a drummer and guitarist/singer in a variety of bands (Euphoriacs, Honey Badgers and Buried Feather), after a while Matcott finally decided to focus on the twanging, narrative-driven material that continually surfaced during his songwriting process.
