Mother Mother’s new single “The Stand” is an urban hip hop tinged tale of a “misanthrope who corrupts the minds of two young school girls” as described by Ryan, who wrote most of the song in his head as a “silly rap style thing to bide time in transit”. The single will be released on 4th April and backed by album track “Simply Simple.”

EUREKA, the third studio album from Canadian avante pop quintet MOTHER MOTHER, is the band’s most tenacious and undaunted record to date. Slated for a Last Gang Records release on 16th May, EUREKA offers up eccentric, hook laden pop-meets-rock songs housed in creative arrangements with clever lyrics and intricate harmonies.

Produced by Mother Mother’s own Ryan Guldemond and mixed by Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Franz Ferdinand, Elvis Costello), the 12 new tracks that comprise the album surpass their predecessors with a greater sense of cohesion, exuberance and overall sonic depth. Guldemond, the group’s chief songwriter and front man describes the album as “a vivid depiction of where the band’s at right now, which is the height of our musicianship, song writing and strength as collaborators”.

With the release of EUREKA, Mother Mother is definitely poised to reach ground breaking heights and milestones, but that isn’t to say an impressive legacy of international acclaim and accolades have not already been sung. Their quirky, experimental debut, TOUCH UP, although not a mainstream success, perked the ears of many and marked the band as one to watch. O MY HEART, the band’s stellar sophomore release, was a more focused effort which received rave reviews, strongly securing Mother Mother as a relevant act in North America and abroad. Coming in at #1 in campus radio in Canada for 6 weeks straight, OH MY HEART was also rated the top 5 best overall album of 2008 on iTunes Canada, not to mention the 6th most added album on CMJ’s Top 20 on release week. The band’s first UK Single “O My Heart” went as far as capturing Record Of The Week on BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe & Maconie Show, subsequently garnering much support from Radio 2 and Radio 6 in the UK as well as inclusion in Q Magazine’s Q50 for July 2010. “Musically fearless, melodically inspired Canadians at their envelope-pushing best”, says Q. The notable Spin Magazine wrote “Mother Mother coos lovely boy-girl harmonies, masking their dire lyrics while slyly exulting in the cleansing blaze.”
Mother Mother’s notoriety stems not only from their knack at making great records, but also due in large part to their remarkable live show. On stage, this group of five delivers a big sound, executing pristine vocal harmonies while utilizing a variety of multi-instrumental talents. Ryan, wielding rhythm and lead guitar, sings lead in his unique, brazen falsetto, while the flanking vocal support of Jasmin Parkin and Molly, who both take on key and synth duties, complete the front line. Jeremy Page on bass and horns, and Ali Siadat on drums and electronics round out the rhythm section to provide the music with an unbending backbone and multidimensional soundscape.
