Review: "My Instincts Are Tragic" - Matilde G

"My Instincts Are Tragic" is the latest release by young Italian rising popstar, Matilde G. The song details Matilde's experience with ADHD and the lesser-discussed challenges that have arose for her because of it. She tackles the hardships that ADHD has brought her and how it limits her impulse control. Even if you don't struggle with ADHD, Matilde has crafted an exciting pop track that is the perfect addition to any playlist. If you enjoy other young pop icons like Tate McRae and Olivia Rodrigo, Matilde G is definitely an up and coming artist to check out. I'm so excited to see what she will release next.

Through “My Instincts Are Tragic,” Matilde compares herself to a predator hunting for prey, reckons with regret from impulsive decisions, and admits that she loves chasing a thrill. The track boldly opens with the lines, “Tonight I’m feeling like a sinner / Is it gonna be hell or paradise.” In the infectious chorus, she sings, "My instincts are tragic / Feels like constantly slipping on ice / Heart so numb from the cold," as she opens up about how ADHD has created a constant struggle for self-regulation and controlling her impulses. Between an exciting electropop production, rich vocals, and vulnerable lyricism, Matilde has crafted an exceptional single.

Matilde G is a 19 year old singer-songwriter based in Singapore. Her musical inspirations include Ariana Grande and Lady Gaga, which has influenced her to bring a fresh energy to pop music. She has put 10 songs out onto streaming services and amassed over 180,000 monthly listeners on Spotify alone.
