For some reason, I love the sound of a guitar being plugged into an amp and the amp being switched on. Okay, none of those terms are technical or may not even be right but you know that little buzz you may hear at the beginning of a set? That’s the sound I’m describing. It’s music to my ears and is always the sign of something good to come so I was naturally drawn to Soft Mothers’ sound “Hysterical Love” which starts off with that quick little sound.

This song is intense in all of the right ways. Although it’s punchy and in your face, it never turns to chaos or anything like that. A song about love and the fallout after love, there’s a true rise and fall throughout which just helps convey the story. There’s a gorgeous break of sorts right about two-and-a-half-minutes in that left me absolutely stunned in all of the right ways. The almost grainy quality of the song adds a raw edge to an already raw song in a perfect way. Sometimes this grainy quality can make things feel a bit retro but that’s not the case with “Hysterical Love”. Instead, it just adds that perfect amount of special sauce to really put this song over the edge. Soft Mothers is from San Antonio, TX and this is their first single from their debut studio album that will be out this fall. What this means to me is I may have a chance to see Soft Mothers live and if it comes, I will not be missing. “Hysterical Love” is one of those songs that I think would come with a deafening sense of power and emotion when performed live.
