This Is Our Jam: Matthew Dear, "Her Fantasy"

As his career has progressed, Matthew Dear has moved from a brooding, behind-the-scenes techno architect to a pompadour-sporting rockstar who can command an audience of any size. With his new single “Her Fantasy” from the upcoming Beams, Dear comes closer to bottling the electricity of his exhilarating full-band live experience than he’s ever done on record. The track takes the dark pop landscape of 2010’s Black City to new levels of intensity, using live instrumentation and lush electronic textures to explosive, ecstatic effect. “Her Fantasy” is six minutes of Dear’s most visceral music to date, hurtling through the gloom toward an unseen synth-pop apex.
