When Melbourne x Mornington Peninsula artist Mathilde Anne tells her story, you know she’s speaking for you too. Whether in haunting beauty, or lyrically shooting from the hip, Mathilde speaks her mind. Wildly writing from personal experience and feeling, her sights are always set on offering a sense of understanding and representation.
Mathilde has amassed fierce inspiration from the likes of modern artists Lorde, Sir Chloe and Arctic Monkeys, as well as all-time legends Amy Whinehouse, Otis Redding, and The Rolling Stones. Growing up in a musical household means her limbs and soul are now deeply rooted in music of all genres and timelines.
Alongside Melbourne’s prolific producer James Seymour (Merpire, FEELDS), Mathilde released 'I've Had Enough' (March 2022) as her debut single under Mornington-based independent label Sandhill Records. The track was written in collaboration with Australian songstress MAXON, award-winning audio engineer and artist Nayomi Pattuwage (Like Bear) and Cheryl Beattie (The Music Industry School of Music). The single paints a picture with crooked lines of frustration; smearing red across relationships with the flaky and the non-committal.
More recently, Mathilde has released 'Dancing in the Living'; another James Seymour-produced masterpiece. DITLR was written after being selected to create a Covid-19 recovery song for the Mornington Peninsula Shire's ‘262 Project’. Mathilde opens up about her body dysmorphia and what Mathilde describes as “a very bitchy” eating disorder. It depicts a kaleidoscope of emotions that were only exacerbated by the Melbourne lockdowns. This track is special to Mathilde's story, and gave momentum to her desire to help those struggling with the same trials.
