Mother is a slick, laid-back rnb track, but surprises the listener with its devastating chorus. Vocalist and composer Ingrid Håvik screams “I need to call my mother” in a powerful and emotional way. The lyrics of this song explore the main themes of birth and death, the cycle of renewal and destruction. Although this song is not a rose-tinted depiction of motherhood, it’s a powerful and moving response to such a complex and multi-faceted concept.
The lyrical complexity in this song may make it hard to understand at times. In order to fully comprehend it, you need to dig deeper. To be honest, I don’t think that’s a bad thing. It will give you a chance to get a deeper appreciation of the song, and it will only lead you to connect with it on a whole new level.
