Venice has a number of buildings by architect Andrea Palladio has put the city on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The band Mother Island from Venice are only listed on the fresh music list!
Mother Island is a surreal, whimsical and lunatic space where five musicians resurface their primary and dawning influences. Mother Island is «A Magic Theatre, For Madmen Only». Mother Island is all in the eyes of the men. The track And We`re Shining,
On their third record, Mother Island collected 10 fresh jangle songs they recorded at Outside Inside Studio right after their tour along the West Coast. With California still in their heart, the band grew wiser, and tried to put some italianness in this brand new work. After all, they never concealed their love for 60s Italian movies and vibes à la Morricone can certainly be heard along the tracks. Still twangy, still psychedelic… what is to come makes you think about a deeply surf-oriented flair, which will make people move their feet!
And We’re Shining is one of those tracks on the album in which the aftertaste of certain surf sounds very dear to the band can be heard more markedly. Anita Formilan finished writing the song’s lyrics in the inner courtyard of a motel in LA, shortly before beginning the tour along the West Coast. Among the most prominent concepts of the lyrics, there is one concerning the entanglement, the interconnection that links inextricably all things, human beings, the Universe through a sort of energy that travels throughout all time and space.
Everything shines before such magnificence.
