When Canadian indie rockers MOTHER MOTHER announced their upcoming album with not one but two awesome singles, "I Got Love" and "Stay Behind", we knew we were in for something special. And now Inside is out, it’s even better than we had hoped!

Taking inspiration from the forced isolation we’re all experiencing, Inside sees all that pent up creative energy exploding into fourteen raw and atmospheric electronic orientated tracks.

"The world stopped, and all the sudden I had a lot more alone time on my hands, which isn't necessarily conducive to songwriting. Usually, I like to venture out and find guidance from an external, interactive narrative — travelling, people, serendipities, etc. I love that process — it's almost like you're in collaboration with the world. But since that wasn't an option, I set about a different kind of travel, one more inward and personal, exploring different types of therapies, meditation, and journaling as a means to unearth songs from a deeper, interior place." – Ryan Guldemond

See Mother Mother smash it at two very special London shows at Heaven and O2 Forum Kentish Town during March next year!

Mother Mother tickets are currently available.
