Ever wondered what it would be like to pack your bags, book a plane ticket, disappear and never return? Then Matt Carsten's new single is for you.

‘Tokyo Coast’ is a relatable song, playing on your thoughts and feelings about having somewhere to go where you can be yourself and not be someone you're not.

Relative to current situations, ‘Tokyo Coast’ intertwines fast-paced, exhilarating moments with easy-going beats.

The lyrics are appropriate and expose Matt's brilliance through his guitar. When paired with his powerful vocals, Matt brings a well-crafted song straight to our ears. 

Matt Carstens is a 23-year-old singer/songwriter who focuses on folk-pop. He has been writing songs since he was 12 and is a promising artist. Matt Carstens' hits such as 'Why Him' and 'High' and an album 2D Heart which have all been fan favourites in the past. Matt doesn’t disappoint and this song will be on its way to the very top soon.

When asked about the inspiration to this newest masterpiece, Matt says, I think it’s a concept that every person can relate to on some level. Living in a world of perpetual change can be overwhelming and stressful to say the least, and as human beings, we seek out so many different ways to escape the social constructs and dynamics that limit us.

And I don’t think anyone could agree more. 'Tokyo Coast' definitely speaks to your soul and deepest desire to be free. It’s personal, comforting, and impressive. Keep your eyes and ears out for songs from this rising star, Matt Carstens. So, crank up the volume and you’re right on your way!
