THICK Share New Single ‘Mother’

    THICK have dropped a new single called ‘Mother’. It arrives on the heels of ‘Father’, which was released in March. Check out a video for it below.

    “‘Mother’ is a shoutout to all the caretakers in relationships who are sick and tired of falling into that role,” the band shared in a statement. “It’s an easy trap to fall into, you start a relationship with love and care, then start to carry the burden of your partner’s wounds, becoming the parental figure, and wanting to heal them more than they want to heal themselves. Put simply: I’m not your fucking mother, I’m your motherfucking lover.”

    Of the video, they added: “The music video was filmed by friend and Brooklyn artist Sydney Tate with the intention of channelling a familiar, parent-ified place. Though the music video doesn’t explicitly represent the frustrations shared in the song, the interior decor, body language, and attire has the flavor of a bored housewife. The heavily themed interior contrasts lively scenes of the band, free of the weight of expectations, playing loudly on a rooftop.”

    THICK’s most recent LP, Happy Now, came out in 2022. Check out our Artist Spotlight interview with THICK.
