About Matraca:“It all starts with a low tremolo guitar, resonating and rumbling in a way that pulls at unspoken places. Deep in your core, you know without words, this is a song – indeed, an album – that’s about loss, desolation, realizing what life is made of and the fact that even you know it just keeps coming.

Being brothers, we knew it would shine a light on layers of our history and the baggage that comes with family dynamics, but knew it was crucial if we wanted to make the musical partnership work. So, we basically forced the living situation: getting up every morning, staring at each other, sharing a bathroom, and forced engagement regardless of the circumstance. It was tricky, and often hard, but it allowed us to work through stuff and grow both musically and as people. We spent a lot of time reading, writing, and listening to music, and learned how to bring out the strength in one another to maximize our collective creativity. MORE
