The best kept secret in music


"The Den Brothers’ debut music video and new single: “Nowhere”"

San Francisco-based alternative rock and rollers the Den Brothers recently released a new single and their debut music video.

The band is fronted by the brothers Hernandez, Matthew, and Tony, on guitars, vocals, and songwriting duties. The quartet rounds out with drummer Grant Vogenthaler and bassist Paul Oviedo. "Nowhere" is the band's first-ever music video, and features Oviedo alongside an actress named Sia.

The song was written by Matthew Hernandez. Directing the video was Vicky Han, and it was shot entirely in San Francisco. The idea was for the video to be primarily performance-based, with a hint of story to elevate the lyrics.

The song, according to Tony, is about finding yourself in a habitual situation that you know is not right for you. But somehow you continue to find yourself addicted to that person or habit. Letting go of it is a struggle, despite the obvious harm that it's causing. The music complements the lyrics by being danceable and catchy.

The four-on-the-floor drum beat and staccato guitar melody give the song a sense of urgency — it's almost anxiety-inducing, similar to the one that feeling stuck can produce. - The Bay Bridged

Still working on that hot first release.



Influenced by no-nonsense rock icons like Oasis, The Foo Fighters, Johnny Marr, and The Black Keys, The Den Brothers have created their own brand of straight ahead rock n' roll that fuses classic rock vibes with modern alternative influences. Brothers Matt and Tony Hernandez grew up in the small coastal town of Fort Bragg, CA, and have been writing music together from a very early age. Upon moving to San Francisco for school, the brothers roomed with So Cal native Grant Vogenthaler, sparking the creation of the musical venture out of curiosity and free time. Soon thereafter, Paul Oviedo took control of the low end and joined the band as the new bass player. After an immediate connection, the brothers' songwriting, which features catchy hooks, big riffs and emotionally driven lyrics, matched with Vogie's thunderous and untamed drumming style has led to a sound that is unique yet familiar, and is sure to leave a big impression on those who listen.
