DEADLETTER’s latest single, “Mother,” is a tour de force of raw emotion and gripping soundscapes. The track, which serves as a teaser for their debut album “Hysterical Strength” set to release in September, draws direct inspiration from Bong Joon Ho’s film of the same name. Opening with jangly, eerie guitars, the song quickly pulls listeners into a world of angst and intensity. Zac Lawrence’s commanding vocals introduce a sense of barely-contained aggression, which is mirrored by the expert instrumentation of the band.

The verses are a masterclass in building tension, with Lawrence’s voice brimming with suppressed fury, only to erupt into passionate chaos in the chorus. This shift is beautifully underscored by Poppy Richler’s saxophone, which provides a pure, almost soothing counterpoint amidst the turmoil.

Produced by the renowned Jim Abbiss, known for his work with Arctic Monkeys and Adele, “Mother” showcases DEADLETTER’s ability to craft intricate and emotionally charged punk music. The band’s energy is palpable, and their live performance charisma translates seamlessly into this recorded track.

Lawrence comments on the song’s inspiration, noting it reflects both the film and the broader concept of motherhood and its boundless sacrifices. As fans eagerly await “Hysterical Strength,” “Mother” sets a high bar for what’s to come, hinting at an album that could define the year in punk music.
