A really fun burst of slacker pop, Step Mum is a mixture of funny lines, catchy hooks and fuzzy guitars. The interesting vocal style is fairly quirky but it works really well in this fast paced two minutes of energy. Lauran Hibberd says “I just realised there were not enough songs in the world about step mums, I had a big desire to change that.” – definitely true, at least I can’t think of many other songs about that particular family member. I just hope most people with step-mums won’t relate to the caricature portrayed in this track!
The debut album, Garageband Superstar, comes out August 19th.
