Mother is an unquestionably heartfelt & captivating piece of music that expresses quite perfectly the sheer pain felt when someone close to you passes away, as well as the joy or hope that comes from everything they meant to you & taught you.
The ideas touch on topics that are likely to be close to heart of many modern day listeners – true to the times, of shared struggle or difficulty. Even so, the band have approached this in an exceedingly comforting way.
The specifics of the song lean in a number of different directions – snippets of jazz appear on occasion, a definite rock influence is hinted at within the drum line & the electric guitar parts.
It’s always interesting when you come across a musical composition that seems to, in its own artistic way, represent its concept by means of every element involved. The song underlines a sense of emotional disconnect with every fibre of its being.
The music builds from something quite mellow into something that is much more emotionally loaded & passionate – complete with chaotic drums & a freely wandering guitar solo.
The songwriting combined with the leading voice are what really make this project stand out. It’s refreshing to hear this genre making waves, what’s even more refreshing though, is how interesting, unexpected, and provocative so much of the writing is.
This concept of getting over it is so much easier said than done, so the set up of this song works brilliantly in representing the journey through dwelling & on into freedom.
The song is easy going & hard hitting all at once. The band are mysterious & skillful, talented & free. There’s something new & beautiful in their sound.
There’s a warmth & joy to the sound, always musically full & crisp; every track has something melodically effective that stays with you for quite some time.
The pioneer of Sitar-rock, crafting bright & enjoyable rock music with an added touch of something special to embrace & to recognise them by.
The connection between singer & song starts to come second to the one between the listener & the song, and that’s a powerful thing & a wonderful gift.
What I experienced in early life & up until now does put things in perspective. I use these experiences to write the most passionate & powerful music I can.
