We’ve been quietly preparing to release our next single “Mother Daughter”, due for release in late October to coincide with Mental Health Month.
Mother Daughter is about the emotional journey of growing up with a mother with mental illness and is the second single from our forthcoming concept album “Mother Mourned”, a personal story about our experiences growing up caring for mothers with illness and the emotional journey of working through innocence, despair, grief and release.
Mother Daughter was recorded at The Grove Studios, produced with the help of Josh Telford and Paul Iannuzzelli, mixed by Jackson Barclay and Ben Knight and is currently being mastered at Studios 301.
We’ll be launching the single officially at the Oasis Youth Centre on the Central Coast for a Mental Health Month event on Friday October 9th and interviewing on 2MCR 100.3FM the following week. Check back for more details and a preview of the track on our site.
All the best,
Bec & Ben (Piperlain)
