WA blues guitar slinger Matty T Wall announces that he’ll be legging it over to the east coast this August in support of his new single ‘Broken Heart Tattoo’.
Hard rocking and big bopping, ‘Broken Heart Tattoo’ tells a tall tale of treachery over a walking bass line – one night, two protagonists, two gunshots and a deadly duel over the girl with the self-referential trademark. The song was inspired by the track ‘Be Cool’ by Albert Collins, another story that ends in a gunshot.
The animated video for ‘Broken Heart Tattoo’ was created by the team at Jumbla in Melbourne and they’ve put together suitably rough, dark, and violent, almost Tarantino-esque imagery in keeping with the murderous themes of the tune.
‘Broken Heart Tattoo was recorded for the album ‘Blue Skies’, at the Rada Studios in Perth.
Says Matty – “For any interested guitarists out there, the main riff was played on a Santana PRS (signed by PRS himself) and played through a cranked 1969 Marshall Plexi. It has become one of my favourite tones of the album, and started my quest for the perfect Marshall amp. I originally intended to aim for a “Money For Nothing” type guitar tone, but I am very happy where it ended up”.
