The sound of a symphony orchestra waging war with an army of drums, synths and sharply-detailed production, Marram’s second album Witches Are Our Mothers fuses the electronic with the organic, the industrial with the pastoral, and the barbaric with the sublime.
Drawing on influences as diverse as The Blue Nile, Can, Miles Davis, El-P, Neu!, Shostakovich, Talk Talk and This Heat, Witches Are Our Mothers is a feast of music that ebbs and flows from rage to rapture. Following Marram’s highly acclaimed debut album Sun Choir (8/10 Clash; 8/10 NME; 9/10 Exclaim!), which featured collaborations with Jarvis Cocker, Owen Pallett, doseone and Irvine Welsh, Witches Are Our Mothers strips away the featured guests to present a devastatingly personal sequence of songs, at once intimate and enormous.
Forged over a ten-year period by core band members Jamie Chambers, Mike Brogan and Colin Delmonte, alongside a long list of collaborators including Luke Sutherland (Mogwai, Long Fin Killie, Music AM, Rev Magnetic) and mastered by Toby Hrycek-Robinson (Stockhausen, Can, Gong, Derek Bailey), the nine self-produced tracks constitute "a work of kaleidoscopic artistry and dexterity that will generously reward the commitment of listeners the way few albums can" (Sean Guthrie).
