When I first heard music from J▲M▲T▲R last October, I was really excited about his creativity, yet wondering if he could be a one-trick pony. Creating music with a Gameboy is so cool conceptually, but there was always a chance it would become gimmicky. However, since I first heard from this Victorian artist, J▲M▲T▲R has gone from strength to strength. He’s played sold-out shows in London, signed a UK record deal, and appeared on the bills of leading local festivals like NYE on the Hill and The Hills are Alive.

His latest single is “Reflect,” a fantastic vehicle for showcasing J▲M▲T▲R’s unique approach to music-making and the vocal talents of his long-time pal Natalie Foster. It was inspired by an Alice Carroll animation depicting a girl lost in space. She feels fearful when her reflection leaves her, but she soon overcomes her doubts and discovers a new strength on her journey.

J▲M▲T▲R will play Sydney’s World Bar on June 9 and Melbourne’s Yah Yahs on June 16 to support the release of “Reflect.”
