The Morakestra are twin brothers from El Paso, Texas who grew up learning guitar together, and infuse their separate but identical voices and talents in the band. Taking influenced from post hardcore artists like Sparta and At the Drive-In, (no surprise, given that legendary musician Jim Ward and his work with the aforementioned bands produced the album), The Morakestra adds modern indie and psychedelic for a subdued indie rock in their upcoming album, Witness to Connection.
In their latest video, "Tell You Something," featuring Megalyn Echikunwoke from CSI Miami, the lead singer undergoes an unlikely transformation and wanders through landscapes, attempting to catch the woman who gave him the fate and begging to tell you something. With complex intricate guitars and the twins' alternating voices, what they are asking to tell you might just be worth listening to. Watch the video below and if you're lucky enough to live in Texas, see The Morakestra play this summer. - Laura Yan
