We don’t know if Athens, Georgia based quartet MOTHERS already have a certain buzz but if not NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION is happy to jump on the bandwagon. The American four-piece delivers melancholic and soulful lo-fi melodies that are carried by the stunning voice of lead singer Kristine Leschper. Their forthcoming debut LP goes by the name When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired and was released via Wichita Recordings on February 26th and fans of dreamy dejection in the style of early Parachutes-era COLDPLAY and DAUGHTER will fall for this, 

The record was produced with the help of Drew Vandenberg (OF MONTREAL, PORCELAIN RAFT) at the Chase Park Transduction in Athens, Georgia back in December 2014. “No Crying In Baseball”, the song that now comes with a sinister music won’t be part of the record but Copper Mines will so we thought we just give you both to convince you of MOTHERS‘ quality. Prepare yourself to fall in love with this band now.

Mothers have announced news of more UK/European headline shows for May and June. Support will come from new Wichita Recordings signings,Globelamp. See all dates below:

When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired features collaborations with Josh McKay of Deerhunter on vibraphone as well as McKendrick Bearden of Grand Vapids, who played bass and provided string arrangements throughout. Comprised of eight songs – the majority of which were written while Kristine Leschper was finishing art school in early 2014 – Mothers’ debut LP is an introduction to the foundations of the young band, a snapshot of a particular period of their genesis that maps both where they began and where they are heading.
