Published Aug 21, 2012Over the weekend, Vancouver's Mother Mother dropped by our office to record a session with Exclaim! TV before their concert in Toronto with Our Lady Peace and Said the Whale. They performed a few songs from their forthcoming The Sticks LP, which arrives September 18 on Last Gang Records, and in this clip you can watch them play "Dread In My Heart."
Lead singer and guitarist Ryan Guldemond matches anxiety-ridden lyrics with a pleasant and acoustic pop tune. He's backed up by his sister Molly as well as Jasmin Parkin on harmony vocals. One of the best moments comes when the guitar drops out and the chorus continues as the girls bounce percussive hand claps off one another.
For more Mother Mother, check out the video for The Sticks single "Let's Fall In Love", which premiered a couple weeks ago on Exclaim.ca.
