Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Never discuss politics, sex or religion. Instead, write pop songs about them! That's the righteous approach taken by GODMOTHER, a transgenre trio based in Berlin that plays “oldies but newbies”, finding that middle ground between the strange and the strangely familiar.
GODMOTHER's first recorded output was “Theme Song from James Bond 23”, released last fall. The sardonic tune scored the band an international hit in the loosest sense possible, amassing over 200,000 views on YouTube (albeit mostly from pissed-off Adele fans). This October, GODMOTHER released a 7″ and music video for the single “These Things Take Time”, which No Fear Of Pop praised as “exuberant, luscious, and delightfully kinky… just effectively smashed the competition for 2013's greatest lyric.”
Meanwhile, Joey (vocals, software), Rocco (cello) and Tranny (sax) continue playing shows, from dingy basement venues to prestigious arts festivals, even a sex club and a vodka distillery, sharing the stage with the likes of Peaches, JD Samson and Light Asylum.
GODMOTHER is pro-creation, but against procreation. Pro-life, anti-body. Birthing ideas. Breathing into existence.
