Mama Kin Spender is a lightning bolt moment between two long-time friends, co-writers and mischief-makers: ARIA-nominated Mama Kin and producer Tommy Spender. It’s a stripped back duo of brooding guitars, primal drums and howling harmonies, illuminated by a chorus of singers arranged by Virginia Bott (Brighter Later, First Chorus Band of Singers). Mama Kin Spender’s songs rattle, roll and tremble, from block party to heart rending ballad. With a sound that is as raw as it is joyful, Mama Kin Spender brings the collective, collaborative and chaotic, inviting you to traverse the golden magnetic.
“Incredible songwriters in their own right, seeing them together feels like the sort of perfect collaboration that you wouldn’t expect, but once it’s in place, you wonder why they didn’t do it sooner.” AU review
“Mama Kin Spender produce a set that epitomises what this festival is. Kin drumming upright with a voice that builds and projects, Spender on guitar, a twenty(or so)-piece choir, they breath soul and vitality into the place” Rolling Stone Magazine
