TRACK: Motherhood – ‘Hey You’

Homegrown Liverpudlian talent and newcomers Motherhood have found a swift pace to encapsulate their audience. Following on from their last single, Save Me we now have a fresh installment of pop riffs and vigorous lyrics that implore memories of a buzz within the listener of the dewy Hey You.

The title gives a nod toward achingly pondered texts to a crush or love interest with lyrics that match this desire we are all so accustom to. Lead singer Evan Torrente pokes the thought of drunkenly texting an ex but stammers as a sobering idea questions why he got to the “ex” prefix in the first place. Verses such as “it’s the signature move of a hopeless romantic” summarise the theme eloquently, matching it with a jovial drum beat and stark vocals comparable to Matty Healy’s own set of chords.

Taken from their forthcoming EP, the track, as well as their comparison to The 1975 proves the likability that oozes from Motherhood’s core. The quartet have already nudged alongside the likes of Paris Youth Foundation and fellow Liverpool lads Her’s whilst having been ogled by publications such as The Clash, DIY and The Line of Best Fit. The future appears bright for this fledgling young band if their adolescent tracks have anything to go by, so cast a glance at the latest addition to your mood-lifting, indie pop selection and watch as Motherhood take center stage.
