Mothers – “Too Small For Eyes”

Mothers picked up a lot of accolades from us based on the strength of just two tracks — best new band, Band To Watch, best songs of the week for both — and now the Athens, GA four-piece are getting ready to release their debut record. It’s called When You Walk A Long Distance You Are Tired, one of the more evocative album titles in recent memory, and they’re kicking things off with “Too Small For Eyes,” the record’s crackling opener. Mothers originally began as the solo project of Kristine Leschper, and it’s easy to hear where this song would slot in with that iteration of the group. This is a softly picked, pained introduction that makes you feel infinitely small and steelily resolved all at once. Listen below.

01 “Too Small For Eyes”

03 “Copper Mines”
