Jason Matu

UNXIGNED is independently run by a team of freelance writers and music curators helping underrated artists get the attention they deserve and guilt-tripping fans into checking out the irresistible. Help us keep the lights on with your riches, you lucky mortals or, better yet, give it to the most needy.

Legally speaking, Jason Matu has a way with words. With his law degree, he makes every word count in his latest single, “Austin Street”. Dropping the lawyer shtick to become a music legend, he’s off to a good start.

“Austin Street” is a grand ole tale brimming with nostalgia for a time when he hung out with his friends Taina and Supriya on the titular “Austin Street” in Forest Hills, New York. Unapologetically happy percussion and a simplistic beat quickly transport you back to a time when there was less to worry about.

Jason Matu’s relaxed swing and carefree attitude throughout “Austin Street” has an almost Jimmy Buffett quality. And there’s a bit of escapism in there too. “Doesn’t matter where we meet; in my heart, it’s on Austin Street.”

Memorializing this place and all the wonderful memories he has there, we’re left to think back on our own Austin Streets. And with just a light sprinkle of piano chords, we can walk back to those moments too.
