Single Mothers share video for new single ‘Metropolis’

Single Mothers have shared the video for their new single MetropolisThe track was written just before 2018’s ‘Through A Wall’ (out now via Dine Alone Records), and the single sees Single Mothers at their pissed-off best, railing against gentrification and rising rents. Watch Metropolis via YouTube below.

Vocalist Drew Thomson explains, “Metropolis was recorded just before ‘Through A Wall’ at Lincoln County Social Club in Toronto, Ontario. It’s a collaboration between Peter Landi and myself. I had recently moved apartments and my old landlord had sold the building we lived in and kicked everyone out. There was a real estate boom and we were all seemingly in the middle of it. Peter came to me with the song and once we were in the studio the lyrics came right away. I was just venting. A few years before I was living in my van. Sometimes it takes all the energy you have just to keep the lights on.” Metropolis is out now on streaming services via Dine Alone.
