Canadian indie rockers Mother Mother have shared their new single “Sick of the Silence” from their upcoming album, Inside.
The rousing track opens with a quiet synth riff before it explodes in a mass of blazing guitars and bouncy energy. Once frontman Ryan Guldemond starts singing “I get so sa-la-la-la sick of the silence/Because I’m terri-la-la-la-fied of what’s inside of it/Yeah, I get so sa-la-la-la-la-la sick of the slience/That I have to, that I have to just scream” you’re completely hooked.
Speaking about the new song, frontman Ryan Guldemond says, “I realized that writing an album about self-betterment wouldn’t be honest unless I did some of that work myself, so a disciplined meditation schedule became a part of my routine. I was struck by just how noisy my mind was during the first half of 2020. It was as though the quietude of the world amplified the cacophony within. Feeling fed up with my meditation practice and the whole new-age/self-help ideology, I wrote ‘Sick Of The Silence’, a loud and aggressive song. Funnily enough, it helped to quell the negative voices and brought about some of the stillness I was seeking.”
