“Only You” By Mother Tongues
Mother Tongues, have dropped new single “Only You,” a track off their forthcoming debut album Love In A Vicious Way, available July 21st via Wavy Haze Records. The track arrives alongside a video directed by the band’s Lukas Cheung. The video reunites Mother Tongues’ singer Aragoza and sibling Jay Aragoza as a dancing duo for the first time in 10 years playing their childhood obsession, 2000’s arcade classic ‘Dance Dance Revolution.’ The track follows previous singles “Only You” follows singles “Worm Day” and “A Heart Beating.”
Lukas Cheung explains: “This song is an ode to all the things we love about the 1990’s/early 2000’s. We’re hoping The Wachowskis make another The Matrix sequel so we can make it onto the soundtrack.” The “Only You” video also features animations by Cheung’s brother Dudley Cheung and artist Carson Teal.
Cheung, who co-produced Love In A Vicious Way alongside Asher Gould-Murtagh (Born Ruffians, Kali Horse), says the LP title is “an exploration of the darker ways we love, the parts with teeth. It possesses you, it’s a pit you fall into. Love overtakes you, this record is about surrendering to that feeling.” While Aragoza is no stranger to the stage–having wet her feet performing in Luna Li and touring alongside acts such as Japanese Breakfast and Beabadoobee.
Love In A Vicious Way ultimately showcases a young band building a musical world that reflects their own unique experience, and extending an invitation to others. “We’re peering into the future and imagining what this world could be. It’s a little William Gibson, a little cyberpunk, it’s lit like a Wong-Kar-Wai film. It’s queer, it’s free, a little goth, everyone’s wearing eyeliner,” Cheung laughs. “I like to imagine our record bleeding out of the headphones of some 16-year-old in this not-so-distant universe.”
