      "It leaps off the page, half statement of intent and half reference to their origins. A London trio, Strong Asian Mothers carry this attitude onstage & their sound is storming the internet." - CLASH Magazine

      "A whirl of flashing lights, frantic energy, and colourful fabrics!" - Pigeons & Planes

      "Sounds like the internet come to life!" - The Line Of Best Fit

      "An evocative, anthemic genre-blend." - Stereo Gum

      London's Strong Asian Mothers' blend of styles and emphatic live show has been making waves on the capital's underground gig scene for a while. Best friends since their early years, Amer, Kalim and Josh have played in bands together throughout their childhoods but it was under Strong Asian Mothers that they really found their strength. Tying together influences from Hip Hop and Trap with Pop in a live band aesthetic really sets this band out all on their own path.

      If in the studio these three excel, then on the stage is where they truly come in to their own. A string of headline spots for Communion, plus stand out performances at the likes of Bestival, Secret Garden, The Great Escape and Reading & Leeds, have cemented them as one of the country's most exciting and promising live acts. Blending electronic and live elements they seamlessly bridge the gap between gig and club and really bring the party. Amer from the band says "We created a live show and chose certain instruments and roles in order to create an experience where every single member is seen as an irreplaceable front man in their own right."

      Their debut 'Lynx Africa' EP won an army of fans across the board from Clash Mag to Pigeons & Planes and became a firm favourite across the Radio 1 airwaves with Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Phil Taggart providing heavy rotation before the lead single 'The More Than I' went on to be added to the BBC Introducing playlist.

      Off the back of their critically acclaimed cover of En Vogue's 'Don't Let Go' (which was even endorsed by En Vogue's original band members on Twitter), came the next single 'Sober' again heavily championed across Radio 1.

      Having just sold out their London headline show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen in Nov, not to mention recording their debut Maida Vale Live Session for Radio 1, the band release the first track 'Just Another' from their forthcoming 'Animal' EP.

      Strong Asian Mothers are starting 2017 with a real statement of intent.
