Bio

Often likened to artists such as Father John Misty and Beach House – Matthew Dewar's "A Star Pilot from Saturn" is a retro/luminescent jounce through a sad boi mixtape.

“"His sets are love-struck dirges, charting characters as they struggle through the absurd perils and splendid crescendos of life, he also has rather expressive feet, tracing quick hieroglyphics on the ground as he plays.” – The Brag

A Star Pilot from Saturn is no alter ego, but rather Matt's artistic manifestation of male sensitivity, optimism, communication and happiness. As a lot of Star Pilot's themes and lyrics and heavily influenced by men's mental health.

After a severely tumultuous but defining two years Dewar has written, recorded and produced an entire body of work from his bedroom.

The hugely anticipated 3rd single RED is comment on that very struggle taken straight from personal experience.

“Electrifyingly haunting vocals”
“Some pretty gnarly lyrics”
- The Music Producer
