The Mother Gurus unleash their wild new video for As Far As I Can Tell (Papercut)

Listening to The Mother Gurus is kind of like getting smacked in the head. But ladies and gentlemen, I don’t think getting smacked in the head has ever felt this good. The Melbourne-based three-piece belt out a concoction of sounds that feels equally hard-hitting and infectious; the kind of music that’ll whack you over, and leave you asking for more.

With the release of their latest single As Far As I Can Tell (Papercut), the band continue to build upon their penchant for crafting deeply addictive, hook-driven garage gems. If you’re not already listening to this band, your straight-up missing out.

On their new video for As Far As I Can Tell (Papercut), Melbourne-based outfit The Mother Gurus deliver a slab of scuzzy punk chaos.

All throughout the new single, The Mother Gurus stomp through a searing blend of thrashy garage punk, pop, and psych to deliver something that feels both familiar and fresh. With flailing guitar lines, bone-rattling percussion, and seriously memorable vocal melodies, this track is bursting at the seams with obnoxious punk charm.

Clocking in at just over two minutes, the track is a sprint from start to finish. The band immediately launch into their relentless brand of music, and the song explodes accordingly.

The tune arrives alongside a new music video, perfectly capturing the song’s chaotic energy. Shot by Jack Ralph on super 8 film and a digital VHS camera, the clip captures bassist Lars Dempsey’s home in all its ‘grubbiness’. But of course, this location is the perfect setting for The Mother Gurus’ scuzzy punk sounds.

As Far As I Can Tell (Papercut) is the first taste off the band’s upcoming debut album, and judging by the quality of what we’ve heard so far, I think we can safley expect plenty more great tunes.

In the meantime, do yourself a favour and check out the new video above.

Catch the band live at Yah Yah’s on October 26th. More info here.
