The Department    Of Nostrum


Having played in bands and writing music and films since he was 15, Matt formed The Department of Nostrum in 2011, joining with Tim playing at pubs and parties around Melbourne – bringing together their experiences in theatre and improvisation. That sense of experiment and fun from the early days of impro has transitioned into the Department’s musical stylings – a unique blend of folk, pop, rock, country and satire. The group have taken their tunes around the world, performing at the 2017 Ghent festival and recording tracks in Sweden and Spain. In 2018 the group have taken things to the next level, with regular gigs around Melbourne, planned expansions to the Department and they’re also very excited to be launching their debut EP in the coming months.
