Canadian avante pop quintet Mother Mother are breaking a lot of ground with their most tenacious and undaunted record to date, EUREKA. The band’s third album, produced by Mother Mother’s own Ryan Guldemond and mixed by Mike Fraser, was released in March 2011 on Last Gang Records and offers eccentric, hook laden pop-meets-rock songs housed in creative arrangements with clever lyrics and intricate harmonies. Their acclaimed sophomore release O MY HEART, a more focused effort, achieved many milestones including the band’s initiation into the mainstream, and coupled with relentless touring, it strongly secured Mother Mother as a relevant act in North America and abroad. EUREKA picks up where O MY HEART left off, yielding two Top 10 singles (“The Stand”, “Baby Don’t Dance”) and rave reviews, while topping the campus charts. But Mother Mother’s notoriety largely stems from their remarkable live show, executing pristine vocal harmonies while utilizing a variety of multi-instrumental talents that have been showcased at numerous venues and notable festivals throughout North America and Europe. Since the band’s conception they’ve become a force to be reckoned with, reputed as an act that challenges the conventions of popular music, cultivating a sound all their own.
