Coming from Oakland, Mother Room is the name of the lo-fi solo project of James Meuleners, formerly of Burnt Thrones Club. Today, we’re premiering Mother Room’s new song “Debt Collector,” off of his debut LP, Scorched, set for release later this spring.
Formed just last October, Mother Room takes on a lo-fi experimental sound that is menacing and heavy. “Debt Collector” features a cacophony of Meulerners’ vocals, screaming guitar, repetitive and thumping bass and guitar, and a consistent rhythm that feels identical to a racing heartbeat. It’s a dark and enthralling song that will leave you aching for just a bit more.
One thing’s for sure: this nearly three-minute tease of what’s to come from Mother Room is a refreshing and absolutely captivating piece of music.
Along with the premiere of this new song, Mother Room has also made his upcoming LP available for pre-order. You can purchase a regular download, a cassette tape version, or a cassette tape with zine of Scorched from The Native Sound.
