In collaboration with local film crew Wombox Productions, Matron Records is pleased to announce the release of local indie rock duo GRYGRDNS' new music video "Brocade" which premieres Monday, August 8th at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, NM. Filmed in Galisteo Basin in April and directed by recent SFUAD graduate Amy West, “Brocade” is the third single off the group’s forthcoming album, Interwoven, which comes out September 2nd. Highlighting the darker side of GRYGRDNS' deeply emotive and immersive sound, the heavy-hitting track is beautifully matched by West’s surreal, yet visceral visual language. The product is a provocative exploration of the many forms of human connection, playing on the themes of trust and betrayal in all their guts and glory.
Forming 2014, GRYGRDNS began as a collaboration between Miranda Scott (Evarusnik) and Eliza Lutz (Future Scars, As In We). Blending their highly unique and contrasting voices with an etheric soundscape shaped by the droning interplay of reverb-drenched guitar and synths, the group has created an undulating soundtrack to a waking dream. The duo are joined by Luke Carr (Storming The Beaches With Logos In Hand) on drums and Cyrus Campbell on bass for their powerful live performances, presenting an experience both uniquely emotional and highly intense. The compositions wash over the listener like a wave of silk and thunder, taking root by way of lyrical poetry that drives their meaning ever forward.

Forming early 2015 as a collaboration between director Amy West and cinematographer Jakob Anderson, Wombbox is a growing collaboration of film students from Santa Fe University of Art and Design. They produced their first video, "Music Box", for local electronic pop ensemble The Maya Spectra which won Best Music Video at AMFM in Flagstaff and the National Film Festival for Talented Youth in addition to winning Best Student Film at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival. Shortly after, the team created a video for Santa Fe's garage rock trio Thieves & Gypsys with sponsorship from Albuquerque's Marble Brewery.
All three Wombbox Production music videos will be screened at the "Brocade" premiere alongside special acoustic performances by GRYGRDNS, Poacher Poacher (Caitlin Brothers of STBWLIH), Jacob Bird and Axolotol (Haven Willis of As In We and TOTI). For more information, visit the event page.
