Matthew And The Atlas and Communion, two names in music that are very much intertwined; Matthew Hegarty of Matthew And The Atlas has been making music with the folk of Communion since circa 2010.  Hegarty has released two EPs of dreamy, textured Americana on Communion Records – the label’s first ever releases back in 2011, paving the way for artists like Ben Howard, Michael Kiwanuka and Bear’s Den.

Australia’s first taste of Matthew And The Atlas is `Another Way`, taken from the forthcoming album  Other Rivers.  `Another Way` features production credits by Kevin Jones (Bear’s Den) and also features guest vocals from Matt’s good friend Matt Corby. The two Matt’s first met at an intimate show at Cafe Ravenous on Portobello Road in 2011 and both went onto work closely with Communion.
`Other Rivers’ is to be released in April.  Expect to hear Hegarty’s familiar and extraordinary low, gravelly rumble of a voice, but filtered through a more electronic and dramatic soundscape.
