Seeing extreme commercial success with first album Nothing Left to Lose, MAT KEARNEY returns with a sophomore effort that surpasses his first album and takes him to new heights. While Nothing Left to Lose was, admittedly, acoustic and filled with words, both sung and rapped, City of Black and White gives the listener a simpler approach. With lyrics inspired by his three-year long traveling lifestyle, Kearney sings of loss and missing those he loves, and learning to deal with the new life he was suddenly handed. Kearney plays more piano and electric guitar; he says, of the lyrics,”I was also listening to a lot of early U2 and Tom Petty, and songwriters like Randy Newman to try to figure out how they could be so concise and profound at the same time. If the last record was more stream-of-consciousness with lots of words and images, City of Black & White feels intentional and refined, attempting to be classic as well as grandiose. I didn’t want to hold anything back.” He indeed does not hold anything back, and City of Black and White is a stellar follow-up, showing that Kearney is moving in the right musical direction.
