20-year-old and 16-year-old siblings Mollie and Mamie McGinn formed Dea Matrona alongside their lifelong friend Orlaith Forsythe in their hometown of Belfast two years ago.
The Belfast band's new single adds a nostalgic back-in-time feel emanating that of the golden age of rock n’ roll, complete with a shredding guitar solo and infectious melodies.
Premiering the video for 'Make You My Star' on Hot Press, Mollie and Mamie McGinn and Orlaith Forsythe appear in a garage-esque setting for the clip, which filtered with a grainy colour-hue.
Making the most of their '70s roots, Dea Matrona appear every inch the future of Irish rock and roll in the video.
Mollie and Orlaith originally met in school, bonding over their love of Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, with Mollie’s younger sister Mamie completing the line-up on drums.
“We wrote ‘Make You My Star’ late one night in the garage back in November," Dea Matrona recently said of the song.
"It started out with the guitar riff and came very quickly to us. ‘Make You My Star’ really captures our live sound, and is our heaviest song to date," the trio add.
"We were planning to release this in April to play on tour but our plans got delayed with all that’s going on right now. We had so much fun with it, we really hope people can hear that!”
The band recently played the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions Y&E Series, sponsored by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
