Vancouver Canada quintet Mother Mother see the long awaited UK release of their album ‘O My Heart’ on May 31st. ‘O My Heart’ is Mother Mother’s second album on Last Gang Records (Metric, DFA 1979, The New Pornographers, Crystal Castles) and since its North American release has achieved great milestones across radio, press and the charts in both Canada and the US.
The album is preceded by the unforgettable and catchy single ‘Hay loft’ on April 19th 2010. Vocalist/Guitarist Ryan Guldemond describes the track as “Your average tale of barn sex gone terribly awry… Daddy’s got a gun, ya know…”
Mother Mother are generating much recognition and excitement with their original approach to modern pop/rock music; a beautifully bent portrait of vocal harmony, clever, offbeat lyricism, and dynamic instrumentation. Their sound is best encapsulated on their new album, ‘O My Heart’, produced by Howard Redekopp (Tegan and Sara, The New Pornographers).
Paramount to the rising success of Mother Mother is their live show. On stage, this group of five delivers a vast sound, executing pristine vocal harmonies while utilizing a variety of multi instrumental talents. With engaging stage chemistry, Mother Mother recreates the essence of their recorded music with precision and conviction, whilst never losing touch with the power of spontaneity and abandon. No stranger to life on the road, Mother Mother tour constantly and have built a large and dedicated fan base in North America. They’ve graced the stage with artists such as Pearl Jam, The Killers and Spoon, and have performed on a diverse array of festival/showcase stages including SXSW, CMJ, Pop Montreal, V Fest, Ottawa Blues Fest, Dawson City Music Festival, Ed Fest, Rifflandia Music Festival and both the Vancouver and Montreal International Jazz Festivals.
With considerable accolades and success in their native Canada as well as substantial headway made in the US, in 2010 Mother Mother turns their sights onto the UK and Europe with a spring release of ‘O My Heart’. They will also be recording the follow up to their acclaimed sophomore album with a tentative autumn release. 2010 promises to be a fantastic year for Mother Mother!
