About Me:
For the painter, the primary colors are at the core of every work of art. No matter how complex the work may eventually become, the simplicity and beauty of the original three colors is the essential element that brings everything together. For Matt and Luke Marantz, the musical brother team behind the newly formed Boston/New York-based band the Primary Colors, it is that essential element in music that is brought to the forefront.

In a contemporary music world dominated by complexity, Matt and Luke Marantz find their home with beautiful melodies and heartfelt lyrics. With both brothers having attended prestigious conservatories, Matt at the Manhattan School of Music, Luke at the New England Conservatory of Music, both are well versed in everything from the bebop cannon to the more contemporary improvisational language of modern jazz. While jazz elements are obviously present in the music, the band leans more toward folk and rock influences citing musicians and bands such as Elliott Smith, the Beatles, Iron and Wine, Sufjan Stevens and others.

Call it what you want, “we just want to make beautiful music”, says Matt. These brothers are interested in something deeper than labels. “What we are really trying to get at is the vitality of the music, and really, who we are as musicians, brothers and human beings”, says Luke. The music is highly influenced by the brother’s histories. With songs like “Texas”, where the brothers are both originally from, and the playful “Dirk Wirk”, citing the local Dallas-area basketball star, the brothers show where they’ve come from while simultaneously taking listeners on a journey towards where they are going.

With musicians from all across the country, the band features Julia Easterlin (Vocals), Matt Marantz (Saxophones), Luke Marantz (Piano/Keyboards), Greg Duncan (Guitar), Aaron Darrell (Bass) and Lee Fish (Drums). Look for the new EP to be released in late August of 2012.
