With their infectiously catchy riffs that would make even Johnny Marr’s ears prick up, rattling drum rolls and tight soaring harmonies it’s no wonder that the Indie Alt Rock collective MOTHER have already attracted attention from the likes of the BBC with their debut single release of Petrichor.
Petrichor is a creation of aural alchemy, not too dissimilar to the psychedelic fury of bands such as The Kooks yet the vocals from vocalist and rhythm guitarist Josh Alden are infinitely more amiable when put against the deft instrumental abilities from Sam Alden (drums), Danny Fisher (guitar) and Everton Barbato (bass). Petrichor is the first audio delight to be released from their already much anticipated EP ‘Remnants of a Wasted Dream’ from the deftly talented Oxford based collective. The band are no stranger to the circuit, the foursome has already achieved notoriety from their earlier ventures through various projects and touring with the likes of The Bluetones and October Drift. Their cacophony of eclectic sounds rings with the influence of bands such as Foals, Bob Dylan and Radiohead. Under the polished production of Mark Gardener, the band really can’t go far wrong.
