MOTHERS (London Lexington, 26/02/16)
There's a glut of new, exciting female-fronted acts hitting the scene at the moment, and one of the most promising has to be Mothers, hailing from Athens, Georgia. Initially the solo project of Kristine Leschper, they sound a little bit like Deerhunter fronted by Angel Olsen, but mostly like themselves. They're not yet as tight as they've got the potential to be, but when everything clicks into place they win over even the jaded London journos in attendance. One to keep an eye on.
