"Some People" is the first single off Matt Ellis’ new album, "Rambler Pacifico". The track is an acoustic stomp, full of country and folk-rock hooks with a lyric that weaves its way through the layers of modern diversity in America.
Written by Ellis and recorded by Lewis Fordham and Fernando Sanchez, the track was mixed by Nathan Sabatino (Dr.Dog/The Flaming Lips/Giant Sand) at his Hi-Dez recording facility in Joshua Tree, California. “Some People” is built around Ellis’ core band with fellow Aussie expat Andy Clockwise adding backing vocals, and Austin’s Pete Okie Weiss on Accordion and Mandolin.
Shot over two days in Los Angeles, the video features a cast of Matt's close friends and his family. Many thanks to J.D. Narro and the crew listed below that made this track and music video possible.
