Listen: Matthew Dear’s playful new song “Pawn In Their Game”

on July 28, 2014, 2:10pm

Matthew Dear closed out 2013 by teaming with Tegan & Sara for a collaborative cover of Tears For Fears’ “Pale Shelter”. Nearly eight months later, the electronic producer returns with “Pawn In Their Game”, his first new song of 2014 and his contribution to the soundtrack of the upcoming PlayStation 4 game Hohokum.

The game is described as a “distinct creative collaboration between artist Richard Hogg and Honeyslug” that’s “vibrantly whimsical” and “emphasizes exploration and creativity with a playful touch.” Matching the fun and colorful paradise of Hohokum, Dear’s electro-pop offering is bright and breezy — perfect for lulling one into an imaginary, digital universe.

Listen to “Pawn In Their Game” over at The Hype Machine.

The Hohokum soundtrack, which also features music from Com Truise, Tycho, and Shigeto, arrives as a digital compilation on August 22nd via Ghostly International. For more information, click here.
