Discovery: Dea Matrona

Dea Matrona are a country band based in Belfast with a beautiful sound to their music – Glory, Glory (I Am Free) struck me instantly with how gorgeous it sounds.

Despite being based in Northern Ireland, Dea Matrona have something of a western sound to their music, with elements of country, folk, bluegrass and Americana to be found in there. The music is catchy but never sounds mainstream (which is a plus to me!) and the vocal harmonies sound amazing – Glory, Glory (I Am Free) truly is a beautiful song!
