Almost any one of the many tools at the disposal of Indie rockers Mathien could lead to a successful modern band. The tongue in cheek clever observational song lyrics, a band of musicians who seem bred to experiment in every possible musical style, and a versatile vocalist equally comfortable crooning a soul ballad, screaming a rocker or shifting to hip hop: put them altogether and you’re no longer talking about a potentially successful band but a great one. Singer, songwriter, guitarist Chris Mathien, the force behind the band’s lightning rod of musical influences, fronts a band boasting three multi instrumentalists, and a drummer who would not be out of place in a thrash band. This diversity allows Mathien to cross musical boundaries that recall early ‘70’s soul, funk and R&B while staying contemporary and avoiding any derivative comparisons.
