Matt and Jamie of The Beginning and the End

The Beginning and the End is a collaboration between Jamie Fraser (ex Jim Fear) and Matt Jones (ex Valfader).

Eschewing the traditional band dynamics of their formative projects, and the 20th century constraints of being in the same place at the same time, the writing and recording of The Beginning and the End’s debut E.P., ‘OUROBOROS’, took place on laptops and homemade computers, across continents, over the course of more than 3 years.

Inspired by bands such as ISIS, Rosetta, Tool, NIN, Mogwai, Oceansize and The Smashing Pumpkins, the duo have created songs that are sprawling, haunting, intense and introspective.

‘OUROBOROS’ explores the frustration and the fury of a dystopian present day, the interminable battle of self, the eternal cycles of beginnings and endings.
