The post-punk project Mothers have released their latest single “Pink,” which comes off of their sophomore release Render Another Ugly Method. The sparse, yet disturbing video depicts singer/songwriter Kristine Leschper endlessly completing forms in a waiting room, seemingly undisturbed by the world outside, even as it goes up in flames.
Steady, pulsing rhythms draw you into the concept of the song, meant to represent childhood memories of being in cars, and the associated feelings of helplessness and removal. The tension in both Lescheper’s voice and the music continues to build almost unnoticeably throughout the song’s nearly seven minutes until it crashes to an explosive close.
"Pink" sounds like Mothers have really sharpened their teeth to push the boundaries of their indie rock sound on Render Another Ugly Method.
