The Two Body Problem
The Two Body Problem is an indie-folk duo trading in lush, complex harmony work, open-hearted songwriting, and traditional arrangement with modern production. After touring Canada together as individual acts in 2022, Alanna Matty and Dan Young forged an onstage rapport, a performance style and a signature sound. Mixing Alanna’s contemporary folk and dream-pop sensibilities with Dan’s Americana and country roots, The Two Body Problem forms a singular blend of the old and new schools - a unique but familiar sound. It’s often fingerpicked and sung in close harmony, but it’s not afraid of a growling electric guitar, a searing synth pad, or the occasional theremin solo. Their influences span across genres and generations - from John Prine to Feist, with a lot of pit stops along the way - and their songs have been hammered out on long drives between gigs, tested in the corners of small, dim-lit barrooms.
