Ireland’s Own CMAT Drops Video For Single “I Don’t Really Care For You”

Ireland’s CMAT is already making her mark on 2021 and is today back with the excellent video for her critically acclaimed single “I Don’t Really Care For You.” Dubbed “the queen of modern pop ballads”, The Line Of Best Fit go further writing “inspired by the sounds of American country singer Charley Pride and Swedish pop icons ABBA, Dublin artist CMAT‘s latest offering is a charmingly relatable rumination on swallowing your pride and acknowledging your faults in a past relationship.” 

The rising pop star tells us the song is about “Realising you were ultimately the bigger dickhead in a relationship.” she continues “I was thinking about how superiority always insists upon itself. Good people will always think they were doing the right thing in the moment, even if their actions are terrible. I try really hard to be a good person, but I still end up being a big bully sometimes. If you ever find yourself saying something along the lines of, ‘I would love him IF…’ or ‘I would stay with you IF…’ then… you’re probably being a dickhead.’  She continues, “Musically, I went to my producer Oli with the vague concept of, ‘What if this song was ABBA doing a spaghetti western soundtrack?’ and he just knocked it out of the park. I was also listening to loads of Charley Pride around that time – and the backing vocals in the pre-chorus are directly inspired by him. Rest In peace king!”
