San Diego, California, USA

We try to write complex songs and make them sound simple, or conversely to write simple songs and make them sound very complex. If we find ourselves with a dense and technical rhythm, we'll strip down a simple, memorable melody as a counterbalance. We always seek that sense of balance in our music.


Operating out of San Diego, Privet combines complex rhythms and haunting melodies often presented in unusual song structures. Privet is Matt Lynott (drums), Tim McNally (bass, vocals), William Hagan IV (keyboard, guitar, vocals), and Sean Walsh (guitar, vocals).

Just on the edge of mathy, jazzy, and at most times very exploratory, Privet is a group of guys who either know exactly what theyre doing or they have the rhythm and music theory gods in their corner.

Privet list Pinback and Radiohead among their many influences, and the similarities throughout this album are undeniable. SD CityBeat
