Portland, Oregon based rock husband-wife duo, The Mutineers, have released the first single, “Couldn’t Get Over You,” from their upcoming EP Threshold, available everywhere digitally on Sept. 14. They also are getting ready to head out on their national tour. The duo previously released the new video for their single “Drug For That,” filmed and directed by California-based photographer and visual artist Clovis IV. This track will be offered as a bonus track on a special Bandcamp edition of the EP.

The Mutineers are influenced by country and punk rock, and feature Brian Mathusek on guitar and Merry Young on drums, with the couple sharing vocal duties. The duo’s sound is influenced by musicians ranging from Bruce Springsteen and X, to Loretta Lynn and Elvis Presley.

“This was written specifically for Merry’s voice. I wrote the first draft of lyrics and she sculpted it to fit her style. Her world-weary delivery is the perfect backdrop to the story. The song contemplates the dual feelings of helplessness and power inside a co-dependent relationship,” says Brian Mathusek.

“The singer is struggling with self-confidence and self-consciousness. She can not decide if she has been too open or not open enough. I think everyone has someone in their life that they can’t stand, but also can’t live without, whether it’s a lover or a family member or a friend. Knowing when to cut someone off is very difficult. By the end of our song, the narrator has given up and given in to this cycle of love and hate, another lost soul.”

The duo’s EP was co-produced by Raymond Richards (The Parson Red Heads) at B-Side Recording Studio in Portland, and is the duo’s third EP and fifth release overall. Their debut EP, Tidal Wave, was released in 2008, followed by the Nihilisteria EP in 2008, and From the Dirge to the Dance LP in 2011.

The Mutineers will be touring nationally through the fall. In the past two years, they have given over 120 performances in 30 states. They have shared the stage with such notable artists as The Tallest Man on Earth, Langhorne Slim, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Larry and His Flask, The Devil Makes Three, The White Buffalo, and Murder by Death. When not touring, the couple run a graphic design and screen printing business, Mutiny Studios.
