Emily Brown, Yearbook Editor in Chief

   The band Mother Mother has released hit songs such as “Hayloft”, “Burning Pile”, “Verbatim”, “Arms Tonite” and “Oh Ana”. Along with having multiple viral songs on the social media app TikTok, they have recently released a new album called “Inside (Deluxe)”. 

   Packed full of 21 songs, the total running time is 1 hour 7 minutes. This pop alternative album is full of interesting stories for each song. The most noticeable being “Hayloft II”, the continuation and counteracting view of “Hayloft”. The original “Hayloft” was released in 2008, but after just gaining popularity on TikTok, the sequel was released. The song explains the ending of the story addressed in the 2008 release. The famous chorus repeats with a pronoun change addressing a new point of view. 

   Other songs released in this album are my personal favorites: “Pure Love”, “Stay Behind”, “Life” and “Frying Pan”. All songs in this new masterpiece included beautiful instrumentals and great lyrics. I overall love this album, but find it easy to get lost in all of the songs. I would recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of Penelope Scott, Ricky Montgomery or any other.
