  • Strong Asian Mothers: New 'Animal' EP
    04 Mar, 2017 news

    On 3rd March, London based electronic alternative pop trio Strong Asian Mothers release their new EP 'Animal' - along with the title track from the EP. Premiering last night on Julie Adenuga's Beats 1 show, the single is a vibrant cacophony of swirling electronics, glitchy production touches, and irrepressible pop-tinged melody ideas.

    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 and now the band are about to step firmly in to the limelight. 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, along with a healthy dose of pop sensibilities - they're not only a formidable live act, but an outfit who are outdoing themselves with every new release.

    New EP 'Animal' is whirlwind 4 track release, taking cues from a wide spread of electronic, and pop influences - pairing inventive electronic production flourishes and ideas, with a strong pop-leaning backdrop. The trio are a formidable proposition, improving with every carefully plotted step they take.

    Speaking on the EP's title track, and the band's new single - the trio said: "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."

    If in the studio these three excel, then on the stage is where they truly come in to their own. A string of sold-out headline spots for Communion, plus stand out performances at the likes of Bestival, Secret Garden Party, 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 every time they step out on stage.

    Their debut 'Lynx Africa' EP won an army of fans across the board from CLASH Magazine and The Line Of Best Fit, to Pigeons & Planes and Stereogum across the pond - and became a firm favourite across the Radio 1 airwaves with Huw Stephens, Annie Mac and Phil Taggart providing heavy rotation. Lead single 'The More That I' went on to be added to the BBC Introducing playlist and picked up further support across Beats 1, XFM and Kiss.

    Having sold out their most recent London headline show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen way in advance last November, not to mention recording their debut Maida Vale Live Session for Radio 1 and Huw Stephens, the release today of new EP 'Animal' marks a huge moment in Strong Asian Mothers' rapid ascent.

    Sharing their thoughts on their new EP, the band said: "After the runaway, global success of the 'Lynx Arica EP', the pressure on us to deliver again was enormous. It was all too much for Josh, who picked up a filthy burger habit and started listening to jazz again. We realised at that point we had to take matters into our own hands - we did a 237.34p Sainsbury's shop and escaped to our friend's mum's house in leafy Oxfordshire for a week and wrote this. The 'Animal EP' is the sound of us taking our destiny back into our own hands and reconnecting with our true, pre-Lynx Africa selves."

    Strong Asian Mothers' next London headline date will be at Kamio, on 27th April.
