June 11, 2013-  Matrimony’s debut EP Montibello Drive, which showcases the band’s “variety, depth and eclecticism” (Charlotte Observer), is out today via Columbia Records.  Fortified with uber-anthemic songs, the EP is streaming at Paste.com.  Daytrotter also posted a live session today, showcasing a taste of the band’s raucous live show, where they’re unafraid to pound drums and manhandle acoustic instruments.  Up next for the Charlotte, NC upstarts are two sets at Bonnaroo, one Friday, June 14th and one Saturday, June 15th, and a full tour that will have them on the road all summer.

Matrimony’s songs are based in rock structures, with rootsy embellishments like banjo and mandolin and an incredibly strong melodic sense, all of it wrapped up in tight familial harmonies.  Fronted by husband and wife Jimmy Brown (vocals, guitar) and Ashlee Hardee Brown (vocals, keyboards), the group is rounded out by Ashlee’s brothers Jordan Hardee (drums) and CJ Hardee (mandolin, banjo).  The family dynamic creates a deeply intuitive musical connection that can be heard on record and is even clearer during the band’s live shows.  Matrimony are already hometown favorites, with the Charlotte Observer calling them “one of the area’s best new bands….occasionally echoes the Arcade Fire’s musical recipe.”
