The album's nine songs are devoted to the world of the subconscious: oscillating between cryptic solitude and exaltation, they depict a broad spectrum of this half-awake intermediate world, powerfully evoked by the singer's surreal dream-interpretation lyrics. The album’s sound is the result of the collaboration between five idiosyncratic personalities: the vocals summon The Doors vibe of the 60's with catchy melodies and analogue delays, the synthesizers indulge the wave of the next generation, while guitars, bass and drums celebrate an anti-thesis without frills, that is based in the here and now. In this respect, “Hidden Scenes“ contrasts with Matto Rules' previous records without neglecting their oft spot for retro music. The surreal dream world lives on in the music videos of the singles. Mostly filmed with the boomerang app, they are an assemblage of numerous dream snippets that distort everyday situations and shift perception with their forward-backward motion.
