Motherfolk Share Music Video for “black eye/bad night”


Indie-rock band Motherfolk have released the music video for their song “black eye/bad night.” “With this video we went more with a visually pleasing vibe rather than a concept or story,” shares vocalist/guitarist Nathan Dickerson. “We took lots of imagery from the lyrics and transformed them into cool on-screen visuals. Being that we shot it around Halloween, we also used the opportunity to get a little spooky and throw on some costumes. A lot of our stuff has been pretty serious lately but I think our silliness pokes its head out in a fun way here. We also learned that honey and eyeballs do not mix. Who’d of thunk.”

The single, described by Glide Magazine as “infectious alt-pop,” is drawn from Motherfolk’s new EP the flower, due out this Friday, November 5. The 7-track collection is the result of a year spent hard at work during the pandemic, creating a versatile sound that lies somewhere between indie pop and garage rock.

“‘the flower’ is our most ambitious release yet,” shares vocalist/guitarist Nathan Dickerson. “Over the past year, we have been writing nonstop with the goal of crafting a new sound. This EP tells the story of what it is like to travel to the darkest place in your mind and what your reality becomes after coming out the other side.” the flower is available for pre-save here:

What started out as a writing project between two college friends has turned into a fully realized band untethered to genres. Now composed of Bobby Paver and Nathan Dickerson on vocals and guitar, bassist Clayton Allender, drummer Ethan Wescott and Karlie Dickerson on keys, Motherfolk are not only bandmates, but best friends. The band’s close-knit relationship allows each member to be their most authentic self, leaving every ounce of their souls to be poured into each song and high-energy performance.

Since their formation, Motherfolk have been on a steady upward trajectory, amassing over 5 million Spotify streams on their three studio albums, selling out shows while touring heavily across the United States and securing a spot on the Lollapalooza 2021 lineup.
