The video is an illustrated and animated psychedelic head melt, which sees the band’s live action footage blend seamlessly with moving graphics that pulsate to the song. The video highlight the seventies influence on Mother and sees the band take their creativity to new artistic levels.
Frontman Matthew Thomson says, “Animation was a medium we were keen to explore with Mother, especially as we felt there would be scope to match the size and ambition of the sonic and lyrical vision of the recording. We had a great experience working with the director Stephen Agnew after being inspired by the visceral approach in his previous work with some of our contemporaries.”
‘Friends wanna kill me’ is Mother’s memorable opening line, arriving more than a minute in to a sexy beast of a song, a recent Annie Mac Hottest Record in the World and currently on the Radio 1, Absolute, Radio X and Kerrang! Radio playlists. It’s a huge, soaring rock anthem about owning mistakes and defying people who judge you without acknowledging their own faults. “Mother started out as a song about seeking forgiveness, but ended up about defiance,” explains Matthew.”
The Amazons were the most hotly tipped band of 2017 and followed through with their debut album reaching #8 in the official chart. From BBC Radio 1 and 6 music A lists, to rounding off the campaign with a sold out tour including London’s Kentish Town Forum, The Amazons are now a rock band poised for greatness in 2019.
The band will be playing a host of festivals over the summer, including the recently announced Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Middlesborough.
