Vern Matz is often described as a bunch of hooligan folk-rockers who stand opposed to brunch culture.
Mixing the edge between the angular and aching, Vern Matz offers up a punctuating sound via“Second Step” (below). The self-proclaimed Hi-fi DIY group creates a luscious bed of tone and color with ripping bass lines and distorted guitars paving the way for lead singer Daniel Belgrad to muse with passionate and direct lyrics. Full of feel and unique inflection, “Second Step” is void of cliche fluff, cutting to the core of what’s real.
“Second Step“ is a break-up song that ramps up in intensity as it marches forward. A lucid tale of separation, the song is a departure from Vern’s pensive songwriting, a rarity meant to push the stereo and disquiet the heart,” says Belgrad.
