The Matinees

The Matinees

 San Francisco, California, USA

Low-key, medium-fi indie pop with boy/girl harmonies. Low meets the Pixies.


This San Francisco boy/girl duo creates stripped-down guitar-based songs that are alternately fervent, bouncy and pensive. The music draws power from influences such as The Pixies, Sonic Youth, and Mates of State while paying respect to the subtle melodies of Low, The Velvet Underground, and The Softies.

They have been featured with an interview on The Bay Bridged podcast and receive airplay on many radio shows including SomaFM's Indie Pop Rocks.

Set List
