Mattias Lies tempers feel-good musical vibes with relationships, low self-esteem and difficult behaviour in his single ‘The Great Divide’. Through the single, he considers how we learn so much more about another person when we enter a relationship. At these times, it can feel like waking from a dream as you try to balance what you believed about someone with what you slowly discover.
Drawing on his own insights into relationships and human behaviour, Lies takes listeners on a wonderful journey of self-discovery and relationship development. Over the years, he has used music as therapy and to create a moral compass that makes the world easier to understand. This really comes through in his sound as he effortlessly pulls you into his thoughts and leads you to something greater.

Through the music, you can feel the darkness on your soul breaking away and fluttering away into the ether. It is a really wonderful movement that helps you breathe a little easier and puts a little smile on your face.
