Mama Kin Spender - The Road

Mama Kin Spender - The Road
With the release of the single 'The Road', Mama Kin Spender prepare for the arrival of their brand new EP ‘Are You Listening?’ which is out on April 9th, 2020.

‘Are You Listening?’ manifests in vibrant detail the 20-year connection between acclaimed Australian musicians Mama Kin and Tommy Spender. An artistic conduit born through chance, Mama Kin Spender lock in on both a musical and a spiritual level. It’s this compelling bond and the creative sparks generated that have marked them as favourites for an ever-growing league of music fans.

With Tommy Spender’s plaintive call and Mama Kin’s tender response, ‘The Road’ features washes of the swelling choir sound that the pair have made a trademark. The song writing sympatico evidenced here illuminates the rarefied creative ground these two artists inhabit. Mama Kin adds, “This song is about what it is to really listen to someone, what it is to listen without rushing into the desire to judge, fix, and change or rearrange their experience for them.”

The forthcoming 'Are You Listening?' EP explores the concept of listening both to others and yourself and wets a high water mark on the already royal tide generated by this inspired pairing.

About this track...

‘The Road.’ a dirt track lament shared by a couple of broken and rejected strangers. A song about those times when someone brings you their broken bits and you sit in the discomfort of their discomfort with them for a moment. Sharing their load, not challenging it by asking them to defend or validate what is real for them.
