“Worm Day” By Mother Tongues

Toronto band, Mother Tongues release their debut album Love In A Vicious Way, on July 21st via Wavy Haze Records. They recently released a video for the album’s lead single “Worm Day.” Mother Tongues are also set to announce additional summer shows across Canada including festival performances at Sled Island with Pom Pom Squad and Sappyfest.

The band said the video captures a carefree reverie from days gone by and it lyrically depicts compulsive, incessant thoughts that tunnel their way into our brains. “The video is a little window into our universe, a celebration of the people and adventures that have gotten us to where we are,” explains guitarist/vocalist Lukas Cheung. “A collage of footage from tours, studio performances, artwork from our brilliant friends, and other little snapshots from our lives.”

The video is the perfect introduction to the musical world of Cheung and vocalist/bassist Charise Aragoza, who are joined on the album by musicians who have played with artists like Lido Pimienta, Maylee Todd, and Zoon: Kvesche Bijons-Ebacher (synths), Lane Halley (guitar), and Nick Kervin (drums). Mother Tongues’ propensity for rich atmospherics and cinematic arrangements reach stratospheric heights on ‘Love In A Vicious Way,’ riding thundering, totalizing waves of angsty alt-rock, interstellar psychedelia, dream-pop-noir, and touches of ‘90s breakbeat and electronica.

Cheung explains the album: “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. I like to imagine our record bleeding out of the headphones of some 16-year-old in this not-so-distant universe.”
