London-based indie outfit Buggs have dropped a new single, ‘Mother’, via Sad Club Records. It follows their recent offering ‘Flaws’, which was featured in the fourth season of Killing Eve. Check out a video for it below.
“This song started off being about my own mother, but it ended up being just as much about myself and concepts of motherhood in general,” the band’s Alice Western explained in a statement. “Through looking at someone else and the way they deal with life you also end up looking inward and examining the way you do things too. It’s a cry out to my mother/women of the world asking ‘How do we do this! How do you do this? How do we get through it!’ It’s ok to feel lost, helpless and vulnerable. We all do, all the time. We should sing songs about it and be lost and hopeless together.”
She added, “‘Mother’ feels a lot more tender for me, especially in the pre-choruses and choruses. This song is a lot more direct – I’m calling out, crying out, trying to work things out. Musically this song is a bit more country, a bit more acoustic and raw for us too.”
