The Mattson 2 are steadily blossoming into one of the more notable family bands within the psychedelic rock scene. The emerging duo, who blend the groove and ease of psychedelia with the intense complexity of jazz, is comprised of twin brothers Jared (guitar) and Jonathan Mattson (drums). On Tuesday, the talented brothers shared their new music video for “Wavelength”, one of the songs set to appear on their forthcoming Paradise LP.
The video’s storyline follows the two brothers as they can’t seem to find one another after initially setting off for some afternoon ice cream. Ironically, the two have no problem finding the perfect musical groove with one another, as the song’s subtle energy holds listener’s attention thanks to its lively swing tempo and dreamy melodies courtesy of Jared’s guitar. The band even looks to expand on their style of performing on this album cycle, as “Wavelength” features lyrics while their recordings have mostly been instrumental-based until now. The lyrics don’t stick around too long however, as Jared eventually takes listeners for a ride with a fantastic guitar solo beginning shortly after the two-minute mark.
Watch the new video for “Wavelength” in full below.
