At the cross-section of sonic hooks, layered melodies, and provocative lyrics, independent rock finds a new voice.
Proper is the first studio work of songwriters Matthew Taglang and David Perry of Athensville, a band also featuring drummer James Farrell and bassist Abhi Taranath.

Fusing the personal and the universal, Proper touches on themes of political alienation, miscommunication between fathers and sons, and life’s uncountable blessings and memories. Symbolism and detail are woven between Proper’s music and its artwork, revealing themselves with each listen.

Proper brings driving rhythms and shimmering guitar melodies building foundations for inventive vocal lines, piano accents, and subtle harmonies.

Produced by Glenn Barratt of Morningstar Studios, this true collaboration of musical visions, written between the pages of daily life, showcases Athensville’s unique sound.
