"Matador," is an onslaught of sharp hitting psych-pop and it's the first song off their upcoming five-song EP, Pour Out The Dark Since. The group first released their self-titled debut EP back in 2013 and it seems that the boys have since found this new fast-paced energy and are pairing it with dreamy guitar hooks and hypnotic vocals.
“Matador’ was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s bullfighting-as-art passages in 'The Sun Also Rises.’ I was first moved by his writing while living in Paris during a semester abroad in college. Reading the novel -- which is about a group of expats visiting the Festival of San Fermin in Pamplona, Spain to see the running of the bulls — the idea of bullfighting as an art form rather than a sport immediately struck me. Seeing beauty and art and being mesmerized by that kind of exhibited violence stayed with me, and it was the first image that came into my head when our guitarists Sarik Kumar and Maxx Berkowitz first wrote the riff that leads the track.”
