Check Out: Matrimony

I spend many hours surfing bands on Spotify. On one such night, I stumbled across the band Matrimony. The song that I heard was instantly stuck in my head, “Obey Your Guns,” has a nice rockabilly feel to it, with an undertone of good old fashioned Americana. After further digging, I discovered that the name of the band is not without meaning. The band is actually a family affair. After meeting brothers CJ & Jordan, the Ireland born Jimmy was introduced to the younger sister and talented singer Ashlee. The romance spawned this Charlotte, NC based band. Many of their songs have an Americana roots feel  and include strong piano influences.

The band will be playing Bonnaroo later this month and  then will primarily be touring across the southeastern part of the US over the summer. They will not be making out West this time, but from the videos of their live performances, they are not to be missed.

  1. You told me about the a while ago and when I checked them out on Spotify, they didn’t really click for me. BUT I hadn’t listened to this song! And this video is awesome. I likeeeeeeeeee. Isn’t it funny how sometimes it takes a second try?

  2. All morning at my office I’ve been over here like… “Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeen you’re youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuung” and you know, butchering lyrics and whatnot.

  3. Yes! That is amazing! The lyrics to this song are not super deep, but boy is this song catchy as all get out.
