Track: Dea Matrona share latest single “Black Rain” ahead of tour

Irish indie rock outfit Dea Matrona drop their latest single – Black Rain – ahead of their UK & Ireland tour in May, and it’s right up there with the level we’ve come to expect from the band.

Always an exciting proposition, they’re a band that plays around with genres, but in a way that feels totally authentic. Black Rain is another example of that blend of indie pop and rock that the likes of Red Button and Stuck On You, released earlier this year have delivered.

This time though, the new track strikes a darker and moodier tone, reflecting “that feeling when your heart sinks. A feeling that everyone gets. Like a lump in your throat when you’re walking alone and think “I shouldn’t be here” or when you’re with someone that might be bad for you and you start to feel scared”

The arrangement definitely conjures those feelings of unease and uncertainty, a darkness that comes to a crescendo of a proper rock classic before taking us down those dark paths again to end.

The duo, Mollie McGinn and Orlaith Forsythe, will be on tour in the UK & Ireland in May, staring off at Liverpool’s Arts Club Loft and rounding off with a home-town gig in Limelight in Belfast. This supports their upcoming record For Your Sins, a labour of love from the band who have written, recorded and produced the album themselves.
