The music on the album is unequivocally indie rock with a tinge of folk but what separates the songs from the masses is the raw emotion that is conveyed. Motherfolk has a type of vibe that is immediate, visceral, and even cathartic. The music is excellent throughout but what really makes this album take off are the vocals. Throughout the band delivers catchy vocal melodies and harmonies that spew with emotion that feels all to real. It’s the exact opposite of the over produced, auto-tuned vocals that are much to prominent in todays musical landscape.
The passion bleeds through each track on this record. You can just tell how much these guys enjoy their craft, and how much they believe in what they are trying to communicate. Things are just beginning for this crew, and I strongly suggest you hop on the bandwagon now.
Any album that has this much feeling running through its vein is bound to make an impact on some level. Do yourself a favor and listen to this now.
There is significance in a group writing and performing songs that have some depth and substance to them in addition to style. Given today’s mainstream music landscape, Motherfolk is a breath of fresh air and after listening to their record, listeners will have solace in knowing pure music is alive and well.
