Dark electro band Matte Black released their debut album on Friday. It’s called I’m Waving, Not Drowning.

You can find it on Bandcamp and Spotify.

The entire album was written and composed during the COVID-19 pandemic, and it touches on themes of loneliness, isolation, and pain. It also includes a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Stripped.”

Matte Black is a trio from San Diego, California comprised of Alex Gonzales, Bidi Cobra, and Daniel Corrales. Prior to forming the band, they worked as “supporting musicians” for other acts, including Julien-k, The New Division, and Moving Units.

They burst onto the scene earlier this year with their debut single, a propulsive tracked called “Pure.” It is a sinister, introspective song with strong Depeche Mode and IAMX influences.
