UK comedian Matt Berry releasing new psychedelic pop LP ‘The Small Hours,’ shares “Obsessed and So Obscure”


British comedic actor and musician Matt Berry, who you may know from The IT Crowd, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace or Snuffbox, will release his new non-comedy album, The Small Hours, on September 16 via Acid Jazz. “[The album] refers to the small hours before dawn when you and me worry about things, ” says Berry. “It can be an intensely quiet time and so all your thoughts and fears can be amplified.” Like his 2013 album Kill the Wolf, this is groovy, paisley-hued psychedelic pop filled with xylophones, horns, harpsichords and more. You can check out “Obsessed and So Obscure” from the album below.
