Meet Strong Asian Mothers, your new favourite band of 2017.
Formed by London-based best friends, Amer, Kalim and Josh, these guys have been playing in bands for years, but it’s in Strong Asian Mothers where they have really come into their own.
Speaking on their new track, ‘Animal’, the guys say, “Animal began as a jam between Josh and Amer in a rehearsal. We added some elephant shrieks, a pack of cards being riffle-shuffled, the sound of us opening a can of fizzy pop and saying “Aaaah” then sprinkled some words on top and it became the juicy, bouncy fella it is today.”
It’s a blend of witty lyrics with agitated electronics and trip-hop-influenced pop sensibilities, and just enough rowdiness to encourage you to get up off your feet, but not to start throwing glass bottles.
‘Animal’ is the lead track from their new four track EP, out now.
