Press Quotes:

“Portland’s Matt Lande drops the stratosphere shattering single “Underground” featured off the album “Boxes”. Dreamy textures move from power-pop affectations toward ultra-dream machine weapons of beautiful design.” – Impose Magazine

I love New Wave music and “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” is such a great song from that time…lots of nostalgia there. It’s been exciting to break from doing my original music and become immersed in the ’80s for this project. I really dug into this song with a goal of reproducing the fantastic original vibe that it had while giving it my own personal touch as well. I hope you enjoy my take on it. ~Matt Lande

“Rather than strip back his sound, he has sought catharsis through an exorcism of emotion.”
– Songwriting Magazine


I love this guy, I love his creativity and his zest of expression. “Underground” is unique and will mesmerize you to the end. You’ll want to know how the song and the video ends. Pay close attention and don’t miss a second. The “Underground” video seems to me to be about a serial killer, a kidnapper, who in the end is a victim himself..or is he? Great concept, production, and presentation.


“Propulsive and dynamic, yet beautiful and even vulnerable.” – IndependentMusicNews24

Produced by Matt Lande and Mastered by Andy Walter of Abbey Road Studios, in London, this newest release shows the caliber of artistry that Lande can display and how easy the music flows.
