From busking in Belfast to rocking stages across the UK and Ireland, Dea Matrona releases ‘Black Rain’, setting the tone for their debut album journey.

dea matrona for your sins

Belfast’s own rock power duo, Dea Matrona, have just dropped ‘Black Rain’, a single shaping up to be an instant rock anthem ahead of their eagerly awaited debut album For Your Sins, set for release on May 3rd.

This latest track takes us on a journey through the murky waters of uncertainty, starting with a haunting guitar strum and building up to a crescendo that captures the essence of those heart-sinking moments.

The band describes ‘Black Rain’ as ” about that heart-sinking feeling, the lump in your throat when you’re in over your head, a sense of feeling trapped.” The song, which stemmed from a writing session years ago, dives deep into the emotions of being with someone potentially bad for you or finding yourself in situations you’d rather escape from.

For Your Sins promises to explore genres, merging indie pop and rock with influences from legends like Fleetwood Mac to HAIM and The White Stripes. The album showcases Dea Matrona’s prowess in creating an engaging mix of tracks, all self-written, recorded, and produced, making it a passion project like no other.

The duo, Mollie McGinn and Orlaith Forsythe, who started their journey busking on Belfast’s streets, have captivated an online community of 500,000 followers with their renditions of rock ‘n’ roll classics and original hits. Their gritty yet melodic sound has already earned them acclaim from outlets like Clash and The Independent.

As they gear up for their UK and Ireland tour in May, Dea Matrona is set to bring their dynamic performance and infectious energy to venues across the region.
