here's everything you need to know, in chronological order: my name is matan. i grew up in a cold midwestern city. my first band included my dad and three friends, and we won the battle of the bands in the local metal scene. We were not a metal band. in college, I studied neuroscience and made music from people's brainwaves. after college, i got a job installing medical software in a danish hospital. naturally, i quit my job and moved to LA to make music again.


Now I perform as paper idol, which sounds like a cross between your favorite indie rock band and your favorite french dj. As a live band, we promise to make you dance, laugh, cry, and sing - all at the same time. i'll be releasing a bunch of songs at the top of 2019, so stay tuned.
