Failed relationships have long provided ample inspiration for artists of all types who have often used heartbreak as a muse for some of their finest work. At least, that much is evident on “You Ain’t Better,” a biting new single from the rising NYC talent, Danny Matos.
Those feelings simmer brightly beneath the surface of the track, which avoids being trapped in “angst-rap” territory thanks to the bright, dubby vocals and production. The latter is handled by frequent collaborator Rusty Mack, of Surf School, and instrumentalist the Red Walrus.
