“Mind_Off” will appear on the upcoming sophomore album Ionika by Metal Mother
“Metal Mother is as dense as the Earth’s core, full of beautiful, eerie, unfamiliar sounds.” – SOMA
Oakland, California’s Metal Mother has posted “Mind_Off”, an album cut from her upcoming sophomore full-length Ionika, scheduled for release Feb 26th, 2013 on the Post Primal label. The album is Metal Mother’s follow-up to 2011’s Bonfire Diaries.
“I like metal but that is not my sound at all,” explains Tara Tati, the woman behind Metal Mother, in an interview with Performer Magazine for its cover story on the artist last year. Tati took the stage name as a way to exemplify the power and strength that comes with being maternal, embodying a force of nature with strength and fierceness.
Tati makes good on the sonic promise of Bonfire Diaries with the upcoming Ionika’s “Mind_Off.” It’s a sound akin to an avant-dance underworld – heavily reflective, enigmatic and textured. The track teems with the existential vulnerability that caused listeners to take notice when Metal Mother emerged in 2011. “Mind_Off” will be followed by the first official single from Ionika to be released before the end of 2012.
Metal Mother will also be following-up the compelling 2011 video for “Shake” which drew further attention to Tati’s dark, haunting themes with its eerie cinematography and earthy visuals.
