The muses of La Musa: CMAT

The joker CMAT says in her Spotify biography that she is recovering from “an AliExpress addiction”, but the few songs she has published so far in her career seem to suggest an addiction to Vinted: the specialty of the Irish artist Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson is to give a second life (and a better life) to those second-hand melodies that have been gathering dust in a trunk for a long time. Singles like I Don’t Really Care for You and I Wanna Be a Cowboy, Baby! transform textbook country music into sparkling fringed pop with that proves that revival, like everything else, can be done right or wrong, with or without flair, by adding or taking away. Retro is also new with CMAT.
