Liverpool-based alt/art-rock trio SPQR return with their heaviest single to date, crushing self-doubt anthem ‘Our Mother’s Sons’, out now on Modern Sky UK.
Commenting on the track, front man Peter Harrison says: “It’s a heavier one, but then a really gentle one too. I think it captures those opposing mental states well: the burst of anger and frustration that needs to come out, and then the quiet contemplation of why.
“The main theme of this song comes from thinking of the people that I know who are all very special and talented, but who have to wade through all this horrible shit that makes them struggle and doubt themselves. You know when you see the lovely things in people but they never will? That. Seems like a theme among the people I love.”
Produced by Margo Broom at Hermitage Works Studios (Fat White Family, Goat Girl, Dead Pretties & more) the single is the latest taste of new material from the band since stand-alone single ‘Blood Pump’ released in 2018, following their 2017 EP, The House That Doubt Built.
