AthFest Artist Spotlight: Mothers

Mothers is the product of artistry transcending mediums. Vocalist/guitarist Kristine Leschper‘s background lies in print making, but her transition into the musical project was stunning enough to fool listeners into believing it wasn’t a new endeavor. In the beginning, Leschper relied solely on her piercing voice, haunting lyrics and sparse, self-accompanied strings to create an aura of intensity that had to be experienced to be believed. Check out this video from a few months ago to get a general idea of what that sounds/feels like:

Since the project’s inception in late 2013, Leschper has drafted the help of local musicians Drew Kirby on guitar and Matt Anderegg on drums to expand her sound. With the additional instrumentation, Mothers’ style retains the striking vocals and folky lyrical qualities of its origin with an inclusion of math-rock elements. It’s a strange meld, but it all meshes together in a way that gives Mothers a more dynamic and wider reaching style. This new incarnation has been in the studio for quite some time recording what will be the group’s debut album, but the only hints of what this will end up sounding like are small snippets posted on social media. If the full project lives up to the samples (which indicate the inclusion of orchestrial instruments), it has the potential to be one of the years most notable local releases.

Unless you’ve been to one of Mothers’ shows in Athens, it’s difficult to understand the emotional weight carried in every performance by Leschper and crew. See it for yourself at Caledonia Lounge on June 26 at 10pm as a part of AthFest.
