Mother Island is a weird, moody and surreal place, where six musicians resurrect their primordial influences. Mother Island is "A Magic Theater, Only for Crazy". Mother Island is all in the eye of the beholder.
Their sound has been described as "the torrid heat of westcoast psychedelia filtered by a British lysergic mist"; in the project are, in fact, the primordial influences of each member, synthesized through a personal reinterpretation of the visionary rock of the '60s.
In February 2014 Mother Island enter the Outside Inside Studio of Matt Bordin (Mojomatics, Team Omega) and record their first full-length album, Cosmic Pyre: 12 tracks recorded entirely in analogic, that are released in January 2015, on vinyl, by Go Down Records. In December 2015 the band is back in Matt Bordin’s studio to record their second album, Wet Moon, which was released in October 2016 always by Go Down Records.
Mother Island define themselves as melancholic, and their music enhances the mood like the full moon reflected on the water: this explains the title of the album, which is the result of a dissolute night spent in a boat wandering through the channels after a concert in Venice. A stream of consciousness that exudes lysergic and inner journeys experiences, in which Anita Formilan’s voice exorcises demons and ghosts of a black imaginary à la Velvet Underground. The sound, though, is warm and enveloping, alluring and sensual, thanks to the work of Matt Bordin, who used only analogic instruments and a Studer 24-track recorder.
