Motherhood channel rockabilly grandfather Charlie Feathers in the lead up to their March 1 album release.

If you were to attempt to trace the roots of Motherhood’s nearly unclassifiable sound, you’d no doubt end up with a scribbled mess spanning dozens of genres and subgenres and sub-subgenres that each contribute some defining characteristic to the group’s sonic lineage. There are no clear paths to follow and no easy pigeon holes to label what they do. That’s probably why they seem most comfortable being called Art Rock, a title that leaves all doors open, granting the Fredericton trio freedom to move wherever they please, whenever the please.

With just a few weeks left before the band’s much anticipated third full length album arrives via Forward Music Group, Motherhood have shared a third single from the project. 

Costanza is an ambitious reworked interpretation of rockabilly pioneer Charlie Feathers’ 1956 single Can’t Hardly Stand It, delivered with all the urgency and catharsis of a panicked broken heart racing high on caffeine and hand rolled smokes.

The track follows previous single releases, Pick of the Pugs and Bird Chirp and in true Motherhood fashion, bears little to no resemblance to either. It’s a frantic ride through shifts in tempo and voice and it’s dark as hell. A great final tease for what’s to come.
