Matoma Heals our Hearts with Newest Release ‘Bruised not Broken’

Everyone needs a little pick-me-up every now and then. Thankfully Norwegian producer Matoma seems to have picked up on this, releasing a summer hit that acknowledges the bruises we all get from the rough patches in life, but also confidently states that things will ultimately be okay in the end. The lyrics are powerful and encouraging, supported by light, airy beats and strong vocals from MNEK and Kiana Ledé, whose voices add a deeper connection to the track, and elevate this hit to the next level.

Grammy award-winning British singer MNEK starts the song with his deep tones and beautiful vocal runs, introducing a glum past of hardships that he quickly transitions with a hopeful, persevering melody full of determination and optimism. Ledé’s powerful and passionate voice adds emotional intensity to the track, taking the melancholy mood upward. Hear it for yourself below!

Matoma manages to create an uplifting single that is perfect for long summer days and fits right in with those hot summer nights. One of the most notable aspects of the song is arguably the sense of independence and self-reliance created by the message in the lyrics tell a promising testimony of being able to put oneself back together, stating things like “though I may hurt sometimes, I know I will be alright.”

If you’re in need of a light at the end of the tunnel, or just want a reminder that you’re stronger than you think and can get through your own set of struggles, this song is the one for you! Give it a listen, and never forget the power of resilience and the strength in relying on yourself in hard times. You’re only bruised, not broken, and it’s okay to take some time to heal in your own way, and on your own time.
