Our Mother is a project between four lads living in London with a knack of making music that’s minimal but melodically rich. And due to the sheer quality of their songwriting, it doesn’t take too long to become absorbed. Poignant piano loops, intricate guitar leads and digital brass sounds slide between the gaps in mid-tempo beats. By keeping it stripped back, they allow their singer’s slinky, high pitched falsettos to be at the forefront. Quite the jokers, their website includes a parody review which makes fun of the daft hyperbole used by music writers such as ourselves. It’s pretty hilarious, but to be honest, Fire Fire does kind of sound like Dan Snaith and Usher playing ping pong on DMT.
