Drawing on influences from both folk and electronic music, EYVA's debut single is a gorgeous swathe of alt-pop that makes for a stunning introduction.
"Mother" manages to be at once dramatic and understated, its gently accented pop punctuated by staccato handclaps and a subtle build of rousing drumbeats. Softly layered vocals build a dreamy downtempo soundscape that feels almost like a lament in places. It's a gently warming half-ballad that envelopes the listener with the confusing heat of a wintry sunrise – appropriate, given its lyrical themes of speculation, perception, and conflicting emotions. Fans of Fleet Foxes and James Blake alike will find plenty to fall in love with here.
