Mother Sun

2 albums

Mother Sun are a band based out of Kamloops, BC who play psychedelia influenced pop and rock music. The four piece group have an unconventional configuration akin to bands such as the Doors where bass duties fall to the hands of the organist. The band has a penchant for both groove based and guitar driven arrangements. While the band’s sound walks the line of a revivalist group their lyrical content addresses contemporary subjects which creates a juxtaposition of modern and classic aesthetics.

Mother Sun released their debut singles “Flower” and “One Eye” on May 18th, 2018 ahead of the release of their debut LP in 2019. The band has recorded at Little Red Sounds in Vancouver with Felix Fung. Fung has taken on the roles of engineer, mixer, and producer and guided the band through strenuous live off the floor recording sessions. The result has captured the band’s tight knit playing and ability to utilize dynamics as another instrument.

Lyrics:

Daylight on the clock Sun high in the sky Soon be getting dark Shut a heavy eye Water flowing down Springs up from the ground Take another turn One more time around Stream running off Reach into the earth Closer to the source Trying to figure out I’ll paint a bigger picture Then wonder what comes after You ask a burning question Still waiting for the answer Daylight on the clock Grey clouds in the sky Soon be getting dark Shut a heavy eye Water flowing down Skin onto the ground Closer to the source Trying to figure out Daylight slow down Pass the time well Daylight on the clock?Sun high in the sky Close to getting stuck Soon be going blind

Lyrics:

The day I lost my one eye I felt the other open wide Said sorry to me The king at his knees You’ll be half blind You’ll be half blind You’ll be Wish you well That thought in a shell Keep passing it by With my one eye I woke up fast in someone’s bed To my one eye The world was red I took advice From my one eye I slipped ahead I fell behind I fell Wish you well That thought in a shell Keep passing it by With my one eye If I don’t find My one eye I’ll treat the other Oh so fine Your sight’s complete You don’t skip a beat Close your eyes The sun don’t shine

Lyrics:

I’ve been meaning to speak with you Leaning, a heavy point of view Do you follow? I don’t know where to go Feeling the wave take control Has your river run dry? Did you ask yourself why? Excuses abide No one left on your side And which one’s mine? I’m feeling a deeper shade of blue Believing the things that can’t be true It’s not far It’s only down the road And where’s time? Gone before you know Has your river run dry? In a space less confined A translucent disguise No one left on your side And which one’s mine?

Lyrics:

Got my jar of flower petals Screwed the lid on tight Don’t want the sunlight escaping Escaping Gone to bed like it going out of style Steal an inch, force a smile Shut your eyes and look around Pay no mind to foreign sounds Dig a hole deep in the ground And I’ll help you down While we’re speaking of the devil Keep your ears shut tight Don’t want the sunlight escaping Your house built from expensive metal Drawing from the well You had installed in the basement Down the rabbit hole we go Where’s the surface? No one knows There’s one more hole in the clouds Where the sun’s beating down But it don’t reach underground I’m lucky that I brought my shovel Dig up towards the light Don’t want the sunlight getting wasted I’d stand up but the ground’s not level Start rolling down the hill My mind is racing, racing Erasing

Lyrics:

Hey mister straw man Strike a match on the back of your own hand And sound the alarm When flames lick your arms Mister straw man Who can breathe all the smoke you’ve been blowing? Crying wolf Might blow down your door Things you said you would do Of course you don’t Hey mister straw man Is there even one leg on which you stand? Scared off the crows They’ll be back in droves Mister straw man Took one page out your big book of matches And struck it hard Till I saw some sparks Straw man Call up the fire chief From the top of that building that you burnt to the ground Call up the fire chief Who won’t come around

Lyrics:

There’s one fresh mistake Then waste no more time The clock ticks until you’re tired A short circuit design Chop off your foot To toe the line And get a log on the fire! To keep warm through the night With a new type of wood It burns far too bright Extinguished While you calculate the price That’s hard to ignore Young and less than pretty sure With too many things to do Your attention span’s a whore When you’ve beaten it to death It’s getting sick of you There’s more than one way To skin a fat cat That feasts through the day Throws a scrap to the rats Sharpening dull tools One penny on his dime Shakes the paw of the law Redefined That’s hard to ignore When they’re rich enough to starve the poor Buy things to fill the room And friends to guard the door Just swimming in the shit! Never satisfied Lining up for more
