Scatterbrained. is a meeting of minds between Andrew Nicolae
(singer/guitar) and Nicholas “Clutch” Colecchia (poet/percussion), two
seasoned musicians. They each have had
“their fair share of musical endeavors between bands and solo growth,”
as they see it. After meeting and falling in friendship at a Memorial
Day pool party in 2016, they knew that something musical would be born.
It was confirmed a few weeks later when they both coincidentally ended
up at the PlayStation Theater in Manhattan to see Four Year Strong and
The Story So Far. After the show they traded music hope, dreams, and
preferences; finding that they were both on the same page in many
aspects, they began collaborating together the very next day. At that
time Andrew was the guitarist for the beloved local band GutterLIFE ,
and Clutch was a freelance percussionist. By December Clutch had joined
Andrew’s previously solo project A.N.A., which they toured with through
the Northeast. GutterLIFE disbanded (much to the island’s dismay) in the
summer of 2018, but with a renewed focus, the team turned to their
project and birthed Scatterbrained. Scatterbrained. lists Twenty One
Pilots, City and Colour, Taking Back Sunday, September Stories, Sir Sly,
Lower than Atlantis, Hotel Books, Panic! At The Disco, Young the Giant,
Highly Suspect, Local Natives, Say Anything, Enter Shikari, Max Frost,
and Alt-J among their musical inspirations.
