Release Date: October 21, 2021
When last years pandemic forced all performers off the road, the two began writing together in earnest and made
plans to record and tour as a duo once curfews were lifted. Calling themselves ‘The Mathews Baartmans
conspiracy’, a year and a half and seventeen tunes later, their new album titled Distant Chatter and it’s
accompanying EP Close Call will be available from September 15, 2021.
It’s a collection of rootsy americana
songs with an adventurous, griy and colorful side to it. Intruiging harmonies and ear catching hooklines.
Mathews and Baartmans call it “an album that had no other option than to be made”. And there it is. Beginning
in November 2021, playing both new and old material, the pair can be seen on stages across Europe in support of
their lockdown album. Home away from home.
