Mother Mother Premieres “Love Stuck” Live Video

Thursday 27th, April 2017 / 12:00

BeatRoute is proud to premiere the latest offering from Mother Mother – a live cut of “Love Stuck,” one of the highlight tracks from the band’s recent album No Culture. Watch it below, and scroll down for a testimonial from the band themselves.

Having used drugs and alcohol to self-medicate since youth, Guldemond decided this as a means to self-actualization and creative zenith was in fact, not working. So he set out to explore life, songwriting, and himself clear of mind and substance for the course of one year, during which No Culture was written and recorded. The result is the most emotionally honest, vulnerable and least cynical album the Vancouver quintet has put out to date.

By removing himself from this social arena, or culture so to speak, with which he largely identified, Guldemond found the freedom to explore lyrical concepts unfiltered by persona and predisposition, making for less allegorical and conceptual writing, such that the band is known for, and venturing into more autobiographical terrain.

This shift in method, and lifestyle, was not met without its challenges, one being a stubborn bout of writer’s block, which Guldemond battled by holing up on his native Quadra Island, where he coerced the muse relentlessly for 6 weeks in the fall and winter of 2015. You can hear this struggle chronicled in the anthemic and dichotomously upbeat track “Love Stuck,” where Guldemond bemoans a condition of emotional paralysis by virtue of over thinking (“I’ve got my love stuck in my head… I’ve got my love stuck in my throat”). But this frustrated self-diagnosis is not without hope for recovery… (“I’ve got to keep my love in my heart… I’ve got to give my love to my soul, and let go”). It is this knowing sense of love-wins that underpins the album, giving context and purpose to the recurring theme of sinful admission.
