MOTHERS – ” Live At Audiotree “

There is quite possibly no band on this planet who’s album we’re more excited about currently than Mothers. Up until this week that was as a result of just one track, the stunning minimal-heartbreak that was the albums lead single, Too Small For Eyes. This week the band have shared another taster of the album in the shape of second single, Copper Mines; thankfully it lives up to our self imposed hype.

What we weren’t expecting though was the huge stylistic shift; whilst Too Small For Eyes was textural music, making use of space and allowing the beautiful vocal melody room to weave its way into your mind, Copper Mines is a completely different beast. Incorporating a more traditional rock sound, it’s resplendent with distorted guitars, crashing drum beats and waves of fuzzy thrills, lurching from the intensity of Fugazi to the slacker pop of Pavement. It’s a complete curveball which begs the question just what is their debut album going to sound like, we’re now a lot more unsure and perhaps even more excited to find out.

Mothers debut album, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, is out via Wichita Recordings on February 26th. Mothers will play their first UK dates in February
