Thundermother – “Road Fever” (2015)


Label: Despotz Records

Review by Alysha Hayden

ThunderMother = a Swedish based quintet of badass rock n roll chicks! Main vocals are by Clare Cunningham, on lead guitar we have Filippa Nässi, Linda Ström on bass, Giorgia Carteri on rhythm guitar and Tilda Stenqvist on drums. From the moment you press play on this album you can expect a big rock sound with lyrics that you’ll be dying to sing along to the next time you’re behind the wheel. Think of AC/DC with feminine power. “Just a Tease” is the first track and this sassy song is sure to get you grinning slyly while you toss a finger wave at the hottie in the car beside you. I recommend you check out the video, the ladies shot for a visual taste of their brilliant dynamic. Just around the bend is “FFWF (Fight Fire with Fire)” which kicks it up a notch and settles us in the ThunderMother’s fast paced sound that’ll have you pushing that throttle a little harder. Clare’s powerful voice brings a lot of energy to every lyric, especially during Enemy with her sisters lending their pipes to increase the impact on this track that every woman can relate to. ThunderMachine starts with the buzz of a tattooist’s gun and some sharp guitar before breaking into a rhythmic track that is sure to be a hit at their live gigs with easy lyrics that are perfect for singing along to.“Road Fever” rolls into the truck stop for the night with some big guitar riffs on the memorable final track “Rock n Roll Sisterhood”. This song embodies the ThunderMother sound youthful, positive and powerful with just enough head banging attitude to have you coming back for more.
