Words like explosive, unrelenting, full throttle etc are often bandied about when talking about bands and often the reality is a bit more pedestrian. This definitely isn't the case with Single Mothers, whose incendiary live shows and critically acclaimed debut album 'Negative Qualities' saw them burst out of London, Ontario and onto stages with the likes of The Bronx, The Flatliners and Title Fight, as well as festival appearances at Riot Fest, Reading and Leeds Festivals, Pitchfork Music Festival and Primavera Sound. In fact, they’re pretty much our favourite living live act. So ya know, that’s a thing.
Here’s some words from Drew: “The band is more than who’s in it at this point. I don’t know any other band that has had a different line up on each release other than Single Mothers. I’ve even been out of the band and it’s moved on, played shows—and I was the one who started it. I look at Single Mothers now more as a vessel that I’m happy to be riding in, or an apartment that people come to visit and leave little things behind in—a couple beers or a shirt, or a poster on the wall, and those things build up and either make a home or just a pile of junk. It’s up to us to decide.”.
So I hope that clears things up yeah? Their new record ‘Our Pleasure’ is out on Big Scary Monsters now.
