Mates of State

Published in Blog Archive, Culture Bully. Tags: .

This husband-wife duo hailing from California have some of the most infectious drum & keyboard driven rock that you might hear this year (or ever…). Their simplistic pop style is one that easily shifts from an ambient rock (in “Think Long”) to something along the lines of a broader, well rounded Atom and His Package (in “Fraud In The ’80s”). By examining their song writing schedule (four to six hour shifts, every day, year round) it’s amazing just how prolific they’ve been and reflects how Mates of State are truly finding a connection between professionalism, love and art.
