"Ha ha ha. Or, I like your style"

The song is thoughtful and captures a mood of youthful indie rock revery, but I wouldnÕt consider it for Ògreatest song in the worldÓ, as the writer refers to it, because I donÕt really think of it as a song, more of a state of mind or something. The words are not entirely intelligible and I couldnÕt find lyrics on their website. That doesnÕt bother me, really. Production a little too sparse on the build, meaning the orchestration wasnÕt full enough to back the force it was striving for.

I like the vocals, makes me think of the film character Juno, but a kind of deteriorated version of her that got detentions and practiced harmless forms of vandalism. Or Mazzy Starr in high school, getting pissed at boys who canÕt hear how beautiful her voice is because she wonÕt sing to them, and she just walks past them in the hallways in a dark-colored hoodie with a silver metallic zipper down the middle. 

The intro section is very Godspeed You Black Emperor, which I like too. - The Music Snob


The Matirns EP - 2007 Tender Branson EP - 2008



The Matirns (pronounced "Mat-erns") are a band from Sammamish, WA. Formed in 2007 while they were seniors in high school, they cut one demo and played a few shows before splitting up to attend college. Now they're back for the summer and ready to start gigging again. The name comes from when Will was around 7 years old, and first learned about MLK Jr. He was so moved he started a tribute band called The Martins. However, there was an unfortunate typo on the promo fliers, and they all said "The Matirns". What was first a placeholder name has now become permanent, much to Will's chagrin.
