Pressed And is the intriguingly named collaboration of Andrew Hamlet and Mat Jones, one of the hydra heads of the burgeoning southeastern electronic music scene. Mat, a North Carolina native and Andrew, originally from Atlanta, met as students at UNC Chapel Hill, where Andrew worked A&R for a student run record label that had Mat's solo project, It Is Rain In My Face record one of their notable VR presents live sessions. They crossed paths again at a showcase a few years later as they were nearing graduation and decided to try working together on some music. With Mat working manipulations of his voice (often from parts of his solo material), Andrew adding heavily processed guitar, and both sharing in various electronic triggers and overall production, Pressed And was formed. After releasing their earliest work on the split EP, Post-Ad For Sync, they began working on their true debut, Imbue Up. Now splitting their time between Brooklyn and North Carolina, and with their first national tour and a hefty chunk of positive press as accomplishments (including a Daytrotter Session), Pressed And are on the verge of laying claim to their portion of the post-chillwave electronic musical landscape.
