A great New York City band in the tradition of Great New York City Bands...
Featuring ten tracks that marry the scratchy yet catchy, swaggering, and dangerous sounds of The Stooges, Blondie, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs with the playfulness, pop sensibility, and exuberance of the finest 90s alt.rock, Mother Feather is the combination of the band’s two independently released recordings – 2011’s Mother Feather EP and 2013’s Living Breathing EP – plus two new songs, Natural Disaster and The Power. The eight tracks found on the previously released EPs have been given new life on the upcoming full-length – including a new music video for the lead off track Living, Breathing, filmed by director Marc McAndrews at NYC’s Bowery Electric.

The group has garnered massive buzz for their unique brand of rock, vibrant Bowie-esque costumes and makeup, and enthralling live show. Having previously been featured on HuffingtonPost.com (who declared them as “a great New York City band in the tradition of Great New York City Bands”), Mother Feather was also recently named “new band of the week” by Metal Hammer, and recorded at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios last week after receiving much play on Daniel P. Carter’s Rock Show on BBC Radio 1. Of the new record, lead singer Ann Courtney says, “I want to make the kind of music that makes hearts explode. The feeling when you’re fifteen and you want to hear that song on repeat turned up as loud as the stereo will go and sing at the top of your lungs and thrash around your bedroom. I don’t want to put any music into the world that isn’t going to save someone – mostly me.”
