She’s Not Yours To Keep: Prodigious Swedish act Mata Kopa urges us to move on with ‘Go Buy the Sun’

Formally known Tellus Children when they first formed a few years ago, Mata Kopa show us their growing maturity on the strikingly real story about swiftly moving on when you are in a stagnant relationship which needs to end, so you can both be truly happy on ‘Go Buy the Sun‘.

You feel like you are floating on a peaceful cloud above all the pollution of the world – on this terrific track which shows you how you really need to let go – for the betterment of your partner and yourself. Hanging on isn’t going to help at all, in fact it will only lead you astray as you try and fight love, which is such a natural process.

Go Buy the Sun‘ from the Swedish indie garage-rock band Mata Kopa, is a really terrific song that is one of the most enjoyable releases of this year so far. Their musicianship is top drawer quality and the soundscape rather world class – as you miss that special soul who you thought was perfect for you – when actually they were in your life to lead you into a new direction entirely.
