Through word of mouth, you might have already heard of MOTHERS. But after the released their debut album earlier this year, When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, they are on the tip of everyone’s tongue and gaining a well-deserved, solid following. Their music is a melodic blend of jangly folk and dreamy indie rock, all caressed with frontwoman and band founder Kristine Leschper’s lyrics of interpersonal predicaments and ponderings. Through pensive in atmospheric sound, their live performance is dynamic and captivating and one not to be missed.
Hardworking and well practiced, MOTHERS has supported of Montreal, Car Seat Headrest, and now, Band of Skulls. They are the kind of opening band that you’re stoked you showed up early to catch and realize that you’re not alone in that feeling as you notice the crowd slowly drifting closer to the stage as conversation softens. With that said, make sure you get to The Fillmore at showtime.
Band of Skulls, MOTHERS
